2021 September Bulletin

Chair Report

Welcome to all our members to another monthly report from the RPSBS, yet again we are all undergoing many changes to our lives with the COVID-19 lockdown of many States, this has impacted on the running of many shows for Spring. We do hope that there will be changes in the near future in respect to having more events when the lockdown is lifted, in the meantime many new foals are being born for our members and we hope that your time is filled with caring for these beautiful foals. Please send in your photos for our foal competition that is running next month.

Please note we are running a Zoom Judges Seminar with 5 UK personalities, any current member can attend, we are encouraging more people to become accredited RP judges as our pool of RP judges is decreasing so if you would like to become one please check out the RPSBS website for information as to how to apply.

The RPSBS  Board has been meeting monthly to look at all aspects of the RPSBS and to make changes that will benefit all members, we welcome your input and valuable experience so please contact any of the Board Directors at any time.

All members should have received their Annual Magazine by now, it is a very sophisticated publication and the Board thanks Show Pony Graphics for the setting up and distribution of the magazine.

All Memberships are now due and we ask that you renew yours, as it is the only way that the Society can continue to provide all members with the Stud Book and to be able to register all Riding Ponies in Australia, as well as Judges Clinics, Sponsorship to other Societies and the continuation of the Website and Annual.

A reminder that the RPSBS Ltd Registry Office is still in lockdown,
please email and an office member will return your call.

Please check you have filled out registration forms correctly before you send them to the office. Please complete all sections of the registration forms and transfer forms and sign them. Not inserting, name, colour, date of birth and sex makes it impossible to register a horse and not signing a transfer or inserting a date makes that paperwork impossible to process.

SA Committee

Congratulations to Tam Cooper for winning Supreme RPSBS In-hand at the recent Gawler Agricultural Show with Beechwood Miss Soprano, and thank you to Julie Lloyd for judging.

The SA committee continues to meet and are planning for our state show (COVID permitting) late in October (31/10/21)- likely to be in association with the Welsh Society and an open ring show which we are hoping to count as Callington Ag show performances. The committee is looking to secure Strathalbyn Polo Grounds as the venue.

The Strathalbyn Ag show will feature ridden riding pony classes as well s over height classes.

Committee Transitions
We thank Julie Lloyd for her years of dedication to the committee but has now decided to step down.

We will be calling for nominees to replace her and possibly even take on a few new members if people are interested. Currently we run our meetings via zoom – so your location is not a barrier. Please consider
