In the past, most breed registries published yearbooks to spotlight the year's winners and to give breeders a place to advertise their horses. Unfortunately, the high cost of printing has made yearbooks a thing of the past for most breeds, but this is not the case with the Welsh Pony. The Welsh Pony and Cob Society of America (WPCSA) is one of the best American registries in terms of providing printed material for those interested in pedigree research. In addition to publishing regular printed stud books, the WPCSA also publishes yearbooks.
The yearbooks average 200 pages (in recent years - some of the back issues are smaller) and contain advertisements, year end award winners and often articles on breeders and bloodlines - all illustrated with numerous black and white photos.
Yearbooks are available for between $7 and $15, depending on the year requested. The club can provide a listing of available issues, along with a list of other printed material available (the registry sells stud books and breed books to the public). For mor information, contact the Welsh Pony and Cob Society of America (PO Box 2977, Winchester, VA 22604).
