Sixty Years of Royal Welsh Champions
A Celebration of Welsh Pony and Cob Champions, 1947–2007
In Sixty Years of Welsh Champions, breed expert Dr Wynne Davies presents
a complete record of equine champions from the Royal Welsh Show, 1947–2007.
Arranged chronologically, each year lists the female and male champions from
each of the four Sections, displaying their pedigree charts (going back to the
great-great-grandparents), and records details of the breeder and exhibitor.
Each entry is accompanied by a photograph, some of which have never before appeared
in print. In addition, the introduction to the book offers a brief history of
the show, detailing the changes in the Section classes and the story behind
the fluctuation in the number of entries.
Both a beautifully presented book with numerous stunning photos, and an exhaustive
record of the event at the heart of the Welsh breeders calendar, this is a must
have for every Welsh Pony and Cob enthusiast.
WYNNE DAVIES was awarded the MBE in 1995 for almost half
a century’s dedication to Welsh ponies and cobs. Dr Davies joined the
Welsh Pony and Cob Society in 1948, has been a Council member since 1955, President
in 1984/5 and Publicity Officer since 1978. He is the author of six previous
publications for J.A. Allen – including The Welsh Cob and The
Welsh Pony – and has been a regular contributor to equestrian magazines,
notably Horse and Hound, for fifty-five years.
