BE AMENDED AND REPLACED WITH:
Section 3 (c) Subject to Article 19 – Sec. 2(a), preceding, ponies or Cobs are eligible for registration if they are already registered in the Stud Book of the Welsh Pony and Cob Society (Great Britain), or the Welsh Pony and Cob Society of America, Inc.. Section A and Section B ponies registered in the Welsh Pony & Cob Society of Australia Stud Book will be accepted provided they are directly descended in all lines of pedigree from ponies registered in the Stud Book of the Welsh Pony & Cob Society (Great Britain). Section C and Section D Cobs will not be accepted. Welsh ponies and Cobs, Imported from other countries shall be eligible for Canadian Registration provided they conform to the requirements of the Welsh Pony and Cob Society (Great Britain) International Register or International Acceptable requirements and only according to the Rules of Eligibility stated in Article 19 which are in effect at the time of the application for registration.

RATIONALE:
The wording in the current section ( c) only allows for the registration of animals from Great Britain or USA. We have recently had animals imported from other countries that we are not able to accept.
The definition of I.A. and I.R., as provided by WPCS – Great Britain is as follows:
I.A. – is International Acceptable meaning that they go back to correctly exported animals however, either one or both the parents are registered with an overseas organization, but not with WPCS.

I.R. is International Register which means that both the parents are registered with the Society either as a Welsh mare/stallion or as an IA mare/stallion.
