    A veteran class will be announced. Eligible are all welsh-ponies /cobs / ponies (only studs and mares), that have accomplished 18-years and also have already made adequate prosperities in this category (e.g. show class winner/overall winner, successful re-breeding/offspring or adequate personal contribution). There will be no ranking in the veteran class. The animals will be presented in trot and walk and afterwards will be brief-commented by a judge. It will be supplemented by the presentation of a document from the exhibitor showing the most important prosperities (has to be delivered also to the nomination office in beforehand). It is foreseen that the veteran class will be in line with the show agenda.

Country competition:

  • Each regional group that presents 5 and more animals in the breeding show, takes automatically part in the country competition. The top 5 will automatically acquire the valuation if there are more than 5 animals presented in each regional group. Important is to mention the regional group on the nomination form. The points will be worked out as follows:

    Ranking 1: 5 points
    Ranking 2: 4 points
    Ranking 3: 3 points
    Ranking 4: 2 points
    Ranking 5: 1 point

    If there are only three ponies in one class the winner will only achieve 3 points and so on. The regional group that scores the most onto their account will win the country competition and gets a gold medal (5 to win). The runner-ups will win each 5 medals in silver and the 3rd winners 5 medals in bronze (in case of a tie the other rankings will be added up onto the following animals )

Special cup:

  • Additional to the country competition we will hand out three special cups for the best ponies/cobs of a foreign exhibitor (winner, reserve-winner, 2nd reserve-winner).
