Annual Awards

The NZSPBS Annual Award and the Overall Shetland Pony of the Year titles are awarded to the Shetland Ponies who gain the most points from placings gained at eligible shows throughout New Zealand in approved breed and activity classes.


The Annual Award presentation is held each year at the Society’s Annual General Meeting. The winners of each title receive the honour of holding the relevant perpetual trophy for the ensuing year and a rosette to keep as a memento. The runner-up to each title receives a rosette to keep as a memento.

 

In-hand results for the Annual Awards are calculated by the NZSPBS Committee from show results sent in by Area Representatives and Show Results Co-ordinators throughout the show season.
