Jo Heard Memorial Trophy

A special friend to many in our Society, Jo Heard was a tireless worker for the CPBSA and a professed Connemara convert. Her ‘Ballantrae’ Stud aimed to breed ponies for children of all ages to enjoy, a capable pony in all disciplines as well as good company. This she achieved and it is in her memory that we award each year the Jo Heard Memorial Trophy – this goes to an all round pony with that something special – not necessarily out winning ribbons at shows.

Nominations, articles, need to be with Secretary by July 31st each year for inclusion.
