Trophy evening


The North of Scotland Shetland Pony Group (NSSPG) held a trophy evening last weekend.

There was a good turnout of members who enjoyed a great get-together which included a buffet, quiz, raffles and music as well as a trophy presentation where trophies from both the summer show and foal show were awarded.

Both the group’s annual shows had been very successful, with high attendance.

As well as showing at the dedicated NSSPG shows, members of the group also make up the bulk of in-hand entries at local showing shows across the area.

Presenting the prizes was Susan Robertson of Garioch Glazing, one of the main NSSPG sponsors.

The NSSPG meet four or five times a year to enjoy sharing information and discussing topics such as breeding and showing of the smallest of Britain’s Mountain and Moorland pony breeds.

New members are always welcome. To find out more about NSSPG, visit
