DO YOU KNOW?
Not every pony that comes from
the New Forest is a pure bred New Forest pony?
Is your New Forest Pony registered with
the New Forest Pony Breeding and Cattle Society?
Does the pony possess the green passport
issued by this authority?
Why is it important to have a Registered
New Forest Pony?
If you have a genuine New Forest
pony, you may need to prove its breed and unless it is registered
with the NF Pony Breeding Society, this is very difficult. (In
fact it may not be possible.) Amongst the mandatory identifying
requirements included in this NF Pony Breed passport will be
the pedigree. These details are supported by the entry in the
Society’s Stud book proving its breeding.
If you buy a New Forest foal make
sure it has the correct registration application form which
can then be presented to the NFPB & CS for the breed passport.
Likewise, if you buy a “New Forest Pony”, the NFPB
& CS green passport will verify it’s breeding.
So what is gained by having the
NFPB & CS passport? Perhaps you wish to enter the pony in
a Mountain and Moorland Show Class. For this you will need to
prove its true breed.
With this passport, the pony is
of greater value. It is a New Forest Pony which when bred from
will continue the bloodline. Its progeny, depending on the Society’s
requisite criteria for the breed, can then be registered in
the Stud book and these NF ponies are not lost to the breed.
