The object of the scheme is to recognise the success of geldings registered with the SPSBS and shown in hand, Geldings of any age are eligible, owned by Group Members, and shown in Shetland classes at N.I.Shows. Ponies must be the bone fide property of the exhibitor.

All shows between 1st May and 30th September on the annual list issued by the Secretary to Group Members will be included.

Points awarded  will be based on the total number of ponies in a class.

eg, If 4 ponies are in a class, 1st = 4 points, 2nd = 3 points, 3rd = 2 points, 4th = 1 point.

For any Show that does not have a separate gelding class, points will still be awarded if shown within a combined class of other shetlands any sex, any age.

We reconise that not all members want to, or are able to show at all shows, therefore to maximise the opportunity for each Pony, only up to the six best results for each will count.

WALKER FAMILY SCHEME

WALKER MARE SCHEME

The Walker Family Mare scheme was implemented in 2009 to recognise the success of Shetland mares registered with the Shetland Pony Stud Book Society (SPSBS) and owned by members of the Northern Ireland Shetland Pony Group (nispg).  Mares (yeldmare or broodmare) aged 4 years old & over shown in hand in Shetland classes at Northern Ireland shows are eligible.

All Northern Ireland shows between the 1st May and 30th September on the annual Show List issued by the Secretary to Group members will be included in the scheme.

Points will be awarded in the following class types:- Shetland Yeld Mare 4 Year old & Over, Shetland Broodmare 4 years & Over, Shetland Mare Class 4 Years Old & Over

In each of the above specified classes, points will be awarded on the total number of ponies in a class; i.e. If 3 ponies are forward, 1st = 3 points, 2nd = 2 points, 3rd = 1 point.

The scheme will also address and award mares competing in combined or open classes e.g., Shetland Mare/Stallion: Shetland Mare/Gelding: Open Shetland Female (any age) and Shetland Pony 4 Years old & over. In combined classes points will be awarded on the number of Mares forward, i.e, if there are 3 Mares in a combined or open class, the highest placed mare will get 3 points, 2nd highest 2 points, etc.

I recognise that not all members want or are able to compete at all Shows, therefore to maximise the opportunity for each pony, only up to six best results for each will count.

I will administer the Walker Family Mare Scheme and present the 'Penny Perpetual Trophy' to the overall winner of the scheme at the NISPG Awards Evening & Dinner.

If you have any queries regarding the scheme or require Clarification on any aspect, please contact me.

All shows between 1st May and 30th September, on the annual list issued by the Secretary to Group members, which host separate classes for ponies of 3 years and under will be included...

Points will be awarded according to the number of ponies shown in a Shetland class, eg. if three ponies are forward, 1st will be awarded 3 points, 2nd 2 points and 3rd 1 point, and so on.

If, when the points are totalled up, two or more ponies are tied  for first, the champion will be determined according to each pony's placings when the relevant ponies are shown in the same classes against each other.

HOSE EXACTLY TROPHY, AWARDED FOR THE STALLION SCHEME.

Exactly unfortunately died in February 2007, from an unknown cause, aged only 13 years. We bought him as a foal in 1994 and showed him regularly. He was a prolific winner in the show ring, both in Shetland and M & M classes, and regularly took champion or reserve champion and also collected awards over the years in Supreme Championships. We decided that the most apt way to remember him would be to present a trophy bearing his name.

The object of the scheme is to recognise the success of Stallions, of 4 years of age and over, registered with the SPSBS,  owned by Group members and shown in Shetland classes at N.I.Shows. All shows between 1 May and 30 September, on the annual list issued by the Secretary to Group members, which host appropriate classes will be included. All types of open classes that include stallions will be included, eg. Stallions and Mares, Stallions only and Males only....  In the interest of fairness to all ponies/members, classes which restrict entries according to a pony's colour, height or previous showing achievements will not be included in the scheme.

Points will be awarded according to the number of Stallions shown in a Shetland class, eg. if three stallions are forward, 1st will be awarded 3 points, 2nd 2 points and 3rd 1 point, and so on.

If, when points are totalled up, two or more ponies are tied for first, the champion will be determined according to each pony's placings when the relevant ponies are shown in the same classes against each other

We recognise that not all members want to, or able to show at all Shows, therefore to maximise the opportunity for each pony, only up to the six best results for each will count.
