The committee of NPS Scotland are delighted to announce that 12 year old Shanyn Wilson from Errol, Perthshire has been awarded a £150 bursary towards further training.

­Shanyn competes her two ponies, Legerview Charlotte (Lottie Section A) and Rivervalley Revolver (Roger Section C).  She has brought Lottie on from a complete novice and produces her ponies herself.  Shanyn highlights so far with Lottie have been being placed 5th in the M & M First Ridden Championships in 2016.  The partnership then went on in 2017 to qualify for the Novice and the Open Ridden Championships as well as the Working Hunter Pony Championships at the NPS Scotland Championships at Blair Castle International Horse Trials.  Her new pony is Roger is only 4 years old and she is hoping to bring him on in the same way to compete in ridden and working hunter classes when he is ready.

We wish Shanyn all the best and hope the bursary helps her with further training.

Well done, and good luck

NPS Scotland Bursary for age 18 – 25 years is awarded to Leona Jade Clark

The committee of NPS Scotland are delighted to announce that Leona Jade Clark from Edinburgh has been awarded a £150 bursary towards further training.

Leona Jade has been involved with native ponies from an early age either competing, grooming or showing in particular Connemara, Exmoor or Fell ponies.  Currently she has a young Connemara gelding who she has backed and is looking at competing in novice ridden level with him this year. In time she aims to do Open Ridden and Working Hunter classes.  She is hoping to use the bursary for jumping lessons and to further their education.

Alongside a passion of competing Native Breeds Leona has a love of photographing them. Examples of her  work can be found at the following website:

She is passionate about the promotion of native ponies, championing them for their versatility and range of character, and enjoys show casing this through photography.


We wish Leona Jade all the best and hope the bursary helps her with her further training.


Well done, and good luck.
