In "Sixty Years of Welsh Champion", breed expert Dr Wynne Davies presents a complete record of equine champions from the Royal Welsh Show, 1947-2007. Arranged chronologically, each year lists the female and male champions from each of the four Sections, displaying their pedigree charts (going back to the great-great-grandparents), and records details of the breeder and exhibitor. Each entry is accompanied by a photograph, some of which have never before appeared in print. In addition, the introduction to the book offers a brief history of the show, detailing the changes in the Section classes and the story behind the fluctuation in the number of entries.Both a beautifully presented book with numerous stunning photos, and an exhaustive record of the event at the heart of the Welsh breeders calendar, this is a must have for every Welsh Pony and Cob enthusiast.
