Ambassador Awards


Welsh Ponies and Cobs often compete in open competitions in all disciplines against many other breeds
and very often, come out on top.

In order to recognize these “ambassadors” of the Welsh Breed, an award program was initiated in 2017
to recognize the ponies and cobs that compete outside of our regular breed shows. The Welsh Pony & Cob Society of Canada will present up to 10 awards per year.
