- Newsflash - As of the 12/06/15 the Spotted Pony Breed Society (Great Britain) was no longer authorised to issue or update passports. Any passports issued by this organisation before 12/06/15 remain valid. Owners of horses with these passports may approach any UK Passport Issuing Organisation to have them updated. Just to clarify, the British Spotted Pony Society is still up and running. The SPBS (GB) has been closed down.
The British Spotted Pony Society evolved when the horse and pony elements of the British Spotted Horse & Pony Society went their separate ways in 1977. The British Spotted Pony Society holds the mother studbook for the British Spotted Pony breed and has full DEFRA recognition.
The Society's aim is to encourage the breeding of quality spotted ponies and to foster interest in and promote the breed.
There are 3 distinct types of ponies; miniatures - 42 inches and under (107cm), riding ponies and cobs upto 14.2hh. Spotted coat patterns are diverse. See Breed Characteristics for more information.
The British Spotted Pony Society have an annual show in July at the Three Counties Show Ground, Malvern. The show ground has stunning views and great facilities. Perfect for our prestigous yet very friendly show. There are a large number of classes, something for everyone! There are a number of other shows that hold classes for British Spotted Ponies, some of which we are affiliated to and highest placed members receive a Society Rossette. See Affiliated Shows for full list.
