Dartmoor Pony Society

Show Affiliations

If you are considering holding Dartmoor Pony Classes at your show you may apply to the Dartmoor Pony Society to affiliate so you can award Dartmoor Pony Society special rosettes to the highest placed Dartmoor pony,  both in hand and ridden or driven.

All Shows who affiliated last year will be sent affiliation forms early January of the next year.

It has been decided that the web site, which will be regularly updated, will include a list of all shows who affiliate to the Dartmoor Pony Society.  This will hopefully assist shows and increase entries.

For those Secretaries considering affiliating for the first time please find below the requirements for affiliation.

Please note: if your show has more than one in hand class for Dartmoor Ponies only, you must use a Dartmoor Pony Society Panel Judge.
