Harbro continue sponsorship of NPS Scotland Points Scheme for 2019

We are delighted that Harbro are extending their sponsorship of the Points Scheme for 2019.  Harbro took over the sponsorship in 2016 of the then Performance Scheme which was then revised to the Points Scheme in 2017 and has run now for 2018.  The competition is running well and is now starting to roll out to include more new exhibitors from a spread of disciplines with this year’s prize winners coming from Cumbria to Caithness.   NPS Scotland are delighted to see the very wide range of native ponies and part breds who are excelling in performance throughout the country.

The prize giving is at the AGM in February and there are some beautiful silver trophies awarded with a raft of rosettes to all exhibitors.  All prize winners receive Harbro vouchers along with fabulous rugs, and gifts to the champions and reserves all very kindly sponsored by Harbro.

Harbro operates a network of country stores spanning Scotland, supplying both the farming, equestrian and wider rural community with quality products for country life. Harbro Country Stores  On behalf of our winners thank you to Harbro, and we very much look forward to working together for 2019.

Tom & David Lifetime Achievers!

Congratulations to Tom Best & David Blair who picked up the “Lifetime Achievement” award at the “National Equestrian Awards” at Dunblane Hydro on March 1st.

Tom & David’s celebrated “Waxwing Stud” has produced many outstanding Welsh Section A & B ponies in the more than four decades since it was established.
Not only have they enjoyed showing success to the very highest level but as judges, breeders and champions of our native breeds they have won many friends & admirers.

Generous with their time, knowledge and experience, Tom & David could not be more deserving of this prestigious award.
