The HBLB is continuing to support the CEM voucher scheme that was trialled in 2013, to cover the cost of the laboratory fee for testing of stallions that have not previously been tested for CEM. To qualify for the free test, swabs must be taken by a veterinary surgeon. They must be accompanied by the HBLB voucher , attached, completed and signed by both the stud/owner and the vet, and sent to one of the 3 participating labs. The lab will report the results of the test back to the vet and there will be no lab fee for the owner/vet.

Due to the high interest in the Dales pony for harness work, the Council is considering sponsoring a Driving turnout to attend the British Driving Society's show at Smith's Lawn, Windsor in 2014. The pony needs to move smartly and be presented to a high standard of driving turnout. If any member feels thay could fulfil these criteria and would like to go, please contact the DPS Secretary.
