Exciting time ahead! Since publishing the Highland Pony 2020 Project in July last year we, at the Highland Pony Society, have been working hard on our latest book, the ‘Highland Pony News Omnibus’. It has now gone to print and will be available in the HPS shop later this month.
The original Highland Pony News magazines which ran from 1969 to 1975 have been digitally re-edited to form one historic book. At between 52 and 44 years interval since the magazines were originally published, these reproduced publications to form a single ‘Ominbus’ book dedicated to our breed. This hard back book of 324 pages is packed full of black and white photos of individual historically important Highland ponies. The content includes stud profiles, biographies of breeders, profiles of ponies plus historic show reports and results. It provides a wealth of information for anyone keen to know more about the Highland pony breed and is an excellent archive of material forming a HPS ‘folklore’ narrative of past times which will be of huge interest to more recent converts to our breeds as well as those who would like to reacquaint themselves with past times.
There is a small amount of content overlap with the ‘Celebration of Highland Ponies’ book, but THIS is the original text of a collection of fascinating articles.
