We’re thrilled to welcome the Thelwell family, who have graciously joined our judging panel this year.

Together, we aim to discover the next generation of equestrian artistic talent. Our sincere thanks to the Thelwell family for their involvement, and we express gratitude in advance for the wonderful prizes they’ll provide to the competition winners.

We are eager to see the interpretations of this year’s theme. Whether it’s a visual representation of camaraderie or an adventurous masterpiece, the unique perspectives within our Pony Club community make it special. This year we also celebrate the 95th Anniversary of The Pony Club and the 25th Anniversary of the Centres Scheme.

The winning piece will be proudly displayed at the prestigious Royal Windsor Horse Show, offering recognition to the talented artist.
