Canterbury Horse & Pony Breeders Society

Welcome to the Canterbury Horse & Pony Breeders Society website.  The Canterbury Horse & Pony Breeders Society was formed in 1974 to encourage and develop the breeding of horses and ponies of all kinds in the Canterbury Area and to further the interests of all persons engaged in such breeding. 

The Society organises two shows annually - a Ridden and In hand show in October, especially designed for young horses & ponies and /or inexperienced riders. The second show is held in February each year, it is for registered breeding stock and progeny which are shown in one of 16 different breed sections.
