Foal Clipping Reminder
Non Clipping of APSB Purebred Foals for Showing.
For some time APSB has received complaints from members concerning the practice by some exhibitors of clipping foals for Foal and other shows. As foal shows are held at the beginning of winter, there is concern that having removed their winter woolies, the clipped foals, may not be properly cared for once the shows have finished. Some states have already set restrictions in place for the clipping of foals at their shows and at the 2013 October meeting of Federal Council, it was resolved to adopt the non - clipping of purebred foals and by including this as part of the Society’s Regulations, all states must comply. As some other societies allow foal clipping, it was also decided to place this restriction only on the purebred breed sections within the APSB that is; each of the Native pony breeds, Shetlands, Hackney Pony and Horse, Fjord Horse and the Australian Pony.
Regulation 47 reads:
Purebred foals under the age of 12 months and registered in one of the ten pure pony breeds within the APSB Society may NOT be body clipped when shown at any foal or breed show. Trimming to be limited to long hairs under jaw, outside of ear and minimal trimming of feathers – no head or neck clipping.
