Scottish & Northern Welsh Pony and Cob Association (S&NWPCA) have kindly made a donation from the remaining funds of their Association to Bransby Horses, following the difficult decision to permanently close.
S&NWPCA was founded in 1962 with the aim of promoting the Welsh Pony and Cob breed and was one of the first to be formed under the umbrella of Welsh Pony and Cob Association, of which there are now many more nationwide. This specific branch of the association covered a large area including the whole of Scotland and the Southern border of Yorkshire and Lancashire. Over time, three other associations were set up in the area, impacting on the membership numbers of S&NWPCA which sadly affected their ability to operate.
Secretary of the Association, Sheila Henderson, was a supporter of Bransby Horses and had helped over the years by donating stamps to the charity. When the association closed, the decision was made to distribute the remaining funds to various charities of which Bransby Horses was one.
Bransby Horses is very grateful for this very generous donation which will enable us to care for more animals in need as well as the equines onsite including welsh ponies and cobs.
