As most of our members will be aware, our founding member and long time President, Phil Sweeting, passed away in April 2016. Phil is sorely missed by us all on the West Yorkshire WPCA Committee, and by all his friends in the Welsh Pony and Cob world. He was a great showman, competitor, friend, judge and a fountain of knowledge!       In his memory our spring show will be in his name and a tombola will be held and all proceeds will go to the Wakefield Hospice. 

The committee would like to thank the judges and stewards for their time, as well as all exhibitors, without your continued support we could not continue.
