STUD BOOK

Volume 20 was the last published studbook, due to the cost of production and the small number sold.

Stud Books were produced approximately every 2 years and include all purebred animals and Part Welsh ponies registered during this period of time. The books also listed all active members and registered at the time, displaying the prefix and brands of the members.

With the online studbook available to all Welsh enthusiasts researching pedigrees, stud and pony locations and members is always available.
