Welcome To Our New Website

A very warm welcome to the new Irish Association of the Welsh Pony and Cob Society’s website.

If you have discovered us, then you have discovered the world of the Welsh Pony and all the joy that these wonderful animals can impart.

At the IAWPCS our aim is to promote the values of the Welsh Pony and Cob, Pure and Part bred. More and more people in Ireland are showing Welsh Ponies, and as an association of the breed, we are committed to support and encourage the success and continuation of this wonderful, versatile pony.

This year, our annual breed show will be held  at Raheen Na Gun in Kilkenny on May 12th, introducing respected UK judges.  On the day, a chance to win one of four overseas Bronze Medals for four of the breed sections.  We also run a Shamrock and Black and Amber final in recognition of both Irish (Shamrock) and an overseas (Black and Amber) bred Ponies and Cobs.

A newsletter is issued quarterly for members and we encourage submission of articles of interest and also for sale/wanted advertisements etc which are free to members. We have produced this Website for the benefit of all Welsh Pony lovers and would like information to include any news items or any relevant information. We also have a Facebook page where members and enthusiasts can comment and discuss.

We keep a stallion list available and this shows all the Irish Welsh studs with contact details. To advertise your stallion is free to members and for non-members €5 for text and €10 with photo.

The annual AGM is held every January and allows members to gather and discuss issues, evaluate the past year and moot suggestions and ideas for the year ahead.

We have an Awards Night in November with a chance to tally your winnings with Rosettes and Trophies for the winners. A wonderful social gathering with like minded people. We hope you enjoy browsing our site and we welcome comment. The site is in its infancy and we will be continually upgrading and adding inclusions, so please be patient and keep visiting for new updates.
