BRITISH PALOMINO SOCIETY NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

 

We are advised that " the BPS Show Committee is working on a new format for the Gala and BPS National Championships "

 

At the 2017 Gala Day, open to all breeds and colours and with dedicated Akhal-Teke classes, we had a good turnout of pure- and part-bred Akhal-Tekes flying the flag for the breed, with showing winners and many placings. Let's try and have even more next year!

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS  (Sunday ?th July) are now open to dilutes - buckskin, cremello and perlino as well as palomino.

Dates, schedules and format to be posted as soon as they are decided by the Show Committee
