Services, Passports and Forms


The main services are provided in order to maintain the Dales Pony Society Stud Book and keep a record of the Members of the Society.  Many of the services require a form to be completed. Forms are available from the Secretary and can be obtained either at the Spring or Summer Shows or by post.  Some of the services are available for non-members, but are subject to different charges.

Equine Passports


The Society is a registered Passport Issuing Organisation (PIO), number 826020. The current rules for applying for a passport are set out here. Please be aware that the Society is responsible for reporting on breaches of the regulations. If you would like further detail on the breaches then please contact the Secretary at info@dalespony.org

Foal Registrations


To be eligible for registration, ponies must have three generations of recorded breeding and are subject to the Rules of Registration. To register a foal, the breeder needs to send a completed Registration Form and the appropriate fee.  Please note that the Secretary needs to receive the request before the end of November in the year of the birth of the foal. There is a separate Late Filing Fee † for requests received between the 1st and 31st December of the year of birth.

There is one form for Pure Bred Ponies and another for Part Bred ponies with 25% proven Dales breeding, calculated from either sire or dam.   Each foal needs to be uniquely identified by use of an approved micro-chip.  Micro-chipping is performed by the vet who does this at the time of completing the drawing for the passport. Once a foal is registered, a Dales Pony Society Passport can be issued and this will be sent to the owner. The Passport is legal document and should be kept in a safe place.  Should the Passport be lost, the Society can produce a duplicate Passport, but as this has to be created from the Society's records, it is subject to a fee.

Late Foal Registrations


Registering a foal after the year of birth contravenes the passport issuing regulations and the Society is required to inform the relevant authorities. It also incurs additional costs for DNA parent checking which is included in the fee *. Foals registered after the end of the year of birth will be signed out of the human food chain as indicated in the passport when issued.

Transfer of Ownership


When a pony is transferred to a new owner, the Passport (or Registration Card) and a transfer fee need to be sent to the Secretary.  Once the details have been checked, the Passport is returned to the new owner.

Please check the Passports page to ensure that you have covered the legal requirements.

To provide details of the transfer please use the Transfer Form

Deceased Ponies


Under horse passport legislation, it is a requirement that passports are returned to the Society for cancellation. The invalidated passports will be retained by the Society. If so desired, the owner can request the return of the invalidated passport, provided a stamped, addressed envelope is provided.

Please check the Passports page to ensure that you have covered the legal requirements on the event of death of any equine.

Stallion Licenses


Where a pony is eligible to be licensed as a stallion, the owner is required to send the Society a Stallion Licence Application and the appropriate fee.  The Council reviews all applications for stallion licences and may request an inspection to take place.  The owner is responsible for making the pony available for inspection at the agreed time and place.  This inspection may take place at one of the Society's shows, subject to the availability of an inspection panel on the day.  All stallions are also required to pass a veterinary inspection and must be FIS tested clear prior to licensing.

Stud Prefix Registration


Members may apply to the Society for a Stud Prefix Registration.  Although the register is maintained by the Central Prefix Register in the United Kingdom, it is one of its rules that an application for a prefix for a specific breed must be made to the organisation that maintains the breed stud book.  An application form needs to be completed and accompanied by the appropriate fee.

 

Shows


Centrally the Society runs a Spring and a Summer breed show, a Performance show, a Foal show. Some Areas run their own show or jointly with other breed societies, for example, in Derbyshire, the Midlands, Cumbria, East Anglia, and Scotland.

All shows are run under the Society's Show Rules.

Show Afflliation


In order to promote the Dales Pony, the Society offers an affiliation service to the organisers of events that include show classes for which the Dales Ponies are eligible.  One or more classes may be affiliated and the Society will provide a rosette for each class for which the appropriate fee has been paid.  Show Secretaries may apply for affiliation by initially contacting the Secretary using the Show Affiliation form, but once established as an affiliated show, the Society will contact the show each year when the Society's rosettes become available.

Sponsorship of DPS Show Classes


Class sponsors are announced at the beginning and end of the class that they sponsor and your name and abbreviated address will be printed for the class in the catalogue for the show.

If you would like to sponsor a class at the Spring or Summer show, please see the Sponsorship form for details.

Visits, Demonstrations and the Breed Stands


We know our members love to be involved with these events so we have formed a mailing list so that interested parties can be contacted on a short or long term basis as requests come in. There is no obligation to partake by signing up to the mailing list but it will allow us to reach more members when we are asked. Whether you can man a stand on foot, take a pony somewhere, talk about your favourite Dales subject, or partake in musical rides and displays (with practise!) then please fill out the Dales Society Publicity form and email it to a.pennell@yahoo.co.uk

 

Membership

Annual Stud Books


Registrations and Transfers are published each year in an additional volume to the Stud Book.  New volumes of the Stud Books (and previous year's where available) are only available from the Society.

The constitution of the Society allows it to provide small items for sale that are produced specifically for the Society, for example: sweatshirts; T-shirts; polo shirts; car stickers; key fobs; badges; mugs; and books.

Details of some of these items and how they can be purchased can be found in the Newsletters. Although this service is provided for the Members, the Society has these items available at many of its shows and other events where the Society Stand is situated.
