CHANGES TO JMB MEASUREMENT 2017
Posted: Nov 2016

The JMB are going paperless in 2017.

From 1st January we will no longer issue or update measurement certificates.

All measurements will be put on the JMB online searchable database and that shows the animal’s details, when the last measurement was carried out and what type of measurement it was.

When registering, please print out a screenshot of the online JMB measurement.

The JMB will  require payment  before a measurement takes place. Owners of ponies will be required to apply for a measurement online and  pay by credit/debit card or  cheque.  The fee for payment by credit card will be £87.00 and cheque £90.00.

Measurers will also submit the results of measurements online and together with prepayment by credit card this will mean that measurements will appear online very quickly afterwards.

Cheque clearance will still mean a delay in measurements being processed for at least 10 days.

If you have any queries regarding this new system for JMB please contact

Press Release from The Showing Council
Posted: July 2015

Following the announcement in December 2014 by the EU Commission, that they were withdrawing the BS/EN1384 hat standard, it became a necessity for The Showing Council to open full discussions with its Member Bodies in order to find clarity for everyone within the Showing community. The Showing Council is very pleased to be able to announce that after full consultation with BETA and open debate at Council, there is now a unified agreement on the use of the BS/EN1384 hat standard which is as follows;

Hats with the BS/EN1384 standard will continue to be permitted for use in affiliated showing competitions throughout 2015 and 2016, for those bodies which are Members of The Showing Council. For full list of Member Bodies please see The Showing Council website www.theshowingcouncil.co.uk
The Showing Council Member Bodies will be removing the BS/EN1384 from the list of recommended standards from the 1st January 2017.

NB: The Showing Council Member Bodies are allowing the BS/EN1384 standard to be worn until at least January 2017, however this may be extended depending on the publication of the new harmonised European standard, the date for which has yet to be confirmed. Equally, should a new European standard be agreed prior to 1st January 2017, The Showing Council Member Bodies reserve the right to update their Rules accordingly.

The Showing Council does advise that all Competitors should update their hats regularly and, when doing so, they should meet one of the current standards.

For further information, please contact your relevant Association or Society.

IMPORTAINT UPDATE FROM SHIBDEN DALE RIDING CLUB
Posted: April 2015
You may or may not be aware that there has been a confirmed case of strangles at a yard in Northowram, close to the show ground. After much discussion we have unfortunately decided the most responsible course of action is to POSPONE the Start Of Season Show due to be held on Monday 4th May to hopefully ensure the risk of infection has passed before we encourage more equines to enter the area. We will keep you informed of any future developments and hope to see you on the 17th May for the 1st Points Show to kick start our season. Also, in view of the outbreak the Car Boot Sale due to be held on Sunday 19th April has also had to be cancelled due to horses being kept on the site. A new date will be set once we are sure the infection will not pose a risk. Please bear with us and thank you to those that have notified

SCOTTISH HORSE SHOW ANNOUNCES NEW VENUE FOR 2015
Posted: 11 Oct 2014

The Scottish Horse Show has completed negotiations and is delighted to announce that the venue for its 2015 show is the Royal Highland Showground at Ingliston near Edinburgh.

Next year, the show will revert to a one day format and takes place on Tuesday, 21 July 2015. Speaking today about this announcement, the show’s Chairman, Tweetie Nimmo, said, “The Royal Highland Showground was for many years the home of the Scottish Horse Show. It was held here during the 60s and 70s, which many of our older competitors and friends will remember fondly. The committee and I are, therefore, extremely delighted to bring the show back to its true home.”

The show has bid for its usual qualifying classes for the prestigious Horse of the Year Show as well as requesting reinstatement of its ridden Welsh qualifiers and Mountain and Moorland Working Ponies as well as some new qualifiers.  The show is now finalising its judges for next year and hopes to announce these shortly.

Mrs Nimmo concludes, “Although we benefited greatly from the all weather going at Ingliston Country Club near Glasgow, we just could not accommodate the number of classes and exhibitors joining us as well as the high costs, which were proving too prohibitive despite making real cuts in our overall costs.”

NCPA CUMBRIA BRANCH
Posted: 24 April 2014

The current committee of the NCPA Cumbria Branch have given notice that they will be stepping down with immediate effect following the branch show on June 7th 2014.

Without a committee it will be difficult for the branch to continue as a separate group so perhaps there are members, past or present, who feel they could take on these roles.

The new committee would have to be prepared to run the area so that it could continue to flourish, however they would receive support & guidence from Main Branch and would also be free to introduce new ideas or events to provide the region with what the members require. Whilst the financial situation of branches remains independent form the Main Branch, many expenses for “running” the branch are covered by the Main Branch
If anyone is interested perhaps they could contact the Main Office in the first instance email: gensec@thencpa.co.uk telephone: 01704 834482

Anyone who might be interested but worries that they don’t have the knowledge to do it on their own would be able to call on Main branch for continued help and could perhaps persuade their friends to become more involved too.

Main Branch are also happy to run a further event for the branch (WHP show date to be confirmed) with the hope that members would feel more confident to volunteer for the committee if they were able to see first hand what might be required

Please don’t be shy! Your barnch needs you!

NCPA AGM REPORT 2014
Posted: 12 March 2014

The Northern Counties Pony Association President, Mrs Elizabeth Mansfield-Parnell opened the evening by wishing a warm welcome to all present at the meeting, in particular the guest speaker Mr Terry Pendry LVO BEM Stud groom & Manager to HM The Queen, and his wife. Members had travelled from as far a field as Scotland, County Durham and Leicestershire for the meeting and to hear our speaker.

The business of the AGM was swiftly dealt with, with all members present unanimously approving the previous AGM minutes and the 2013 Accounts and the auditor was reappointed for 2014. There were no questions from the floor, neither was there AOB submitted, or raised on the evening.

NCPA

Mr Terry Pendry LVO BEM Stud Groom & Manager to HM The Queen presents Lancashire member Tina Carswell with her 3rd Place in the 2013 Arthur Smith Breeders Awards.

 

The secretary Janet Bushell, gave a brief report in order that members might fully enjoy our wonderful guest. She thanked the Trustees of NCPA for taking the bold decision to completely revamp the website, with a new provider Equine Affairs, and reported that this had been a great success & that members could really be kept up to date at the touch of a keyboard. Also the decision to "go on line" had definitely been the correct one. She thanked Entrymaster Ltd for powering all the new systems and their patience in the development of our unique system & the training of herself to use it. Although this was currently a very steep learning curve for her luddite tendencies, and had greatly increased her work load for 2014, she was positive that it was the way forward and the real benefits for the members would also reduce her workload for 2015. She felt that NCPA, although not one of the largest organistaions, was now at the forefront of equine showing, not only for the good value for money and the variety it offered to its members, but also for the technical innovation it offered to make transactions easy for all.

The evening then continued with the 2013 awards, which were presented by the our guest speaker Mr Terry Pendry LVO BEM Stud Groom & Manager to HM The Queen.

ARTHUR SMITH BREEDERS AWARDS:
In Hand
1st CHETWYND Countess of Shrewsbury
2nd ROYALVIEW Miss A B Roberts
3rd = EARLSWOOD Mrs R Gwilliam IMPERIAL Miss T M Goulding/ Mrs T Carswell

Ridden
1st = CHETWYND Countess of Shrewsbury NANTDYWYLL Mr John Jones
3rd SANDBORO Miss K Phillips

Unfortunately Debbie, Countess of Shrewsbury, who had claimed a first for NCPA in its Golden Jubilee Year, by winning both the In Hand & Ridden breeders awards with her wonderful Chetwynd Welsh ponies, was unable to attend. Despite recognising the honour she had telephoned the office to say that sadly she would be at Cheltenham and therefore be unable to receive her awards in person. Only Tina Carswell was there to collect her award in person, and was photographed receiving her rosette from Mr Pendry.

POINTS AWARDS:

In Hand
1st HENGWYS CADI Mrs Lynda Hexham (Handler David Hexham)
2nd JANNAH'S PROSPECT Mrs Leander Walton-Barnes
3rd MEERING MAYFLOWER Anna Newbold
4th HIGH AMBITION II Tamara Atkinson
5th AYTOUNHILL PEREGRINE Cath Mundell
6th COCHYCWM SEREN NOS Cath Mundell

Ridden
1st WEST LEAKE SOPHISTICATION Henrietta Barton (Rider Henry Barton Smith)
2nd COCHYCWM SEREN NOS Cath Mundell
3rd ROSEVEAR SWEET MYSTERY Anna Newbold
4th BARKWAY MAGIC MOMENT Mrs E Speakman
5th NANTDYWYLL TRIBAN Mrs E Speakman
6th AYTOUNHILL PEREGRINE Cath Mundell

This year's In Hand points winner had the highest margin the secretary had seen since taking office over 12 years ago and the photos of the pony in the Golden anniversary yearbook showed why.

The winner of the Ridden Points was also unique. Henrietta Barton had bred the very successful pony herself & he had been beautifully shown in Lead Rein classes by her young son Henry Barton Smith. Henrietta would be having to take a less hands on role for 2014 however, as Henry would be "going solo" this year, thus helping to make the 2013 award even more special.

The secretary also made special mention of the Mundell family who had travelled all the way from Scotland to receive their awards gained in both the Ridden and In Hand sections and wished them all further success in the 2014 season.

There followed a wonderful talk from Terry Pendry. NCPA were honoured that he had taken the time to come from Windsor Castle to share his memories of life with the Royal family and their horses, and indebted to HM The Queen for allowing him the time to do so. The slide show, accompanied by wonderful music, took those present through the full cycle of Royal life, from quiet personal moments to the wonders of full ceremonial displays. It emcompassed the sadness of Royal loss, with memories of the Queen Mother's funeral, and displays of rousing National triumphs, showing fly pasts by the Red Arrows, Spitfires, wartime bombers & also Concorde. We were honoured to share this record, as the only other copy is in the archives at Windsor Castle. Thanks were given by a round of applause for her Majesty, from all those present.

Everyone then enjoyed an excellent hot supper and choice of deserts and the evening stretched on into an enjoyable social time for all those present, some of whom were staying the night either at the Deanwater Hotel or at other nearby accommodation.

NCPA PANEL JUDGES
Posted: 1 September 2013
As from 2013 all NCPA panel judges will be required to attend at least ONE judges conference every FIVE years. 2013 is the first in the five year cycle.

There are currently no plans in place to hold a separate conference for our panel & so members who are also on BSPS, NPS, PUK, Show Horse Association or Sport Horse GB panels may count that society's conference as covering their requirement. For M&M panel judges who are not also on other mixed breed panels, they may count their breed society study days/conferences.

For all other judges, the conference to count will be the annual conference held by the SHOWING COUNCIL. For 2013 this is to be held in conjunction with the SHOWING COUNCIL/ SHOWING WORLD AWARDS on SATURDAY 26th OCTOBER at the EAST of ENGLAND Showground. Attendence is at the conference is FREE & should be a most enjoyable & informative day.

The conference will be followed by a black tie dinner for those wishing to attend the awards ceremony (£35 per head) – please see www.showingworld.co.uk for further details on how to book. Please find details of the Dartmoor Pony Society Study Day (September 22nd at Springwater Stud)

It is hoped that all our members who are breeders will take advantage of the early publication of this yearbook (Jan/ Feb 2014) to promote their stud and support NCPA in what will surely be a much sought after edition. Likewise we hope members who have businesses (equine related or not) will support the association by advertising in the 2014 edition which goes out to approximately 1000 households.

Branch News & Member Updates

NORTH YORKS & COUNTY DURHAM BRANCH
Posted: 1 September 2013
The OPEN MEETING held on WEDNESDAY 15th MAY 2013 (8.00pm) was a very productive and informative evening. New and renewed memberships were taken and the branch now has an enthusiastic group of people willing to form a new, expanded committee, to take the area forward. Further details will be sent to all members when names, dates and contact details have been finalised. Lyn Dorey-Adams attended the meeting, but felt unable to join the Association, so the Trustees accepted this statement as her resignation. Brenda Gray also attended the meeting, and was pleased with the new offers of support, but has since tendered both her's and Donna Basham's resignation. The Trustees of the Northern Councties Pony Association offer their thanks to the above for their previous hard work for the branch.
