Centered on Welsh. Open to all.
ABOUT THE SHOW
The Wild Rose Welsh & Open Pony Show offers classes for Welsh Ponies and Cobs, alongside many open classes—registered and unregistered ponies and horses are most welcome.
This is a family-friendly show in Alberta with competitive and fun classes for all ages and skill levels. We have a variety of in-hand, riding, and driving classes—from Welsh, Sport Pony, and Model Hunter halter classes to English, Western, hunter/jumper, and gymkhana ridden classes to driving, showmanship, and costume.
Our show includes a youngstock Futurity on Friday evening and the main show on Saturday and Sunday. Our exhibitors are placed under three quality judges over one weekend—a great bonus, particularly as this is one of only two Welsh shows in Alberta, and one of only a few across western Canada.
The 2019 show will take place at Westerner Park: 4847A 19th Street Red Deer, Alberta.
