The Eriskay Pony Society was founded in 1995 as the successor to the unincorporated Eriskay Pony Breed Society. The Eriskay Pony Society was the first of the Eriskay Pony Societies to achieve recognition as a breed society for the Eriskay Pony under UK and EU regulations in 1995 and is the largest Eriskay Pony Society.
The Eriskay Pony Society is also recognised as a passport issuing organisation for the Eriskay pony under UK and EU law and issues passports for Eriskay Ponies and Eriskay Pony part breds.
The Eriskay Pony Society exists to promote the breeding and use of the Eriskay Pony in the present day. These rare ponies of remarkable temperament and hardiness are carving a special niche for themselves in today's competitive world.
The Society works hard to ensure that the numbers of Eriskay Ponies increases in a healthy population. The long term health of the Eriskay Pony breed will be assured by the Eriskay Ponies being recognised for the wonderful qualities that they have throughout the equine world, which will create a demand for the ponies. To achieve this, the Eriskay Pony Society puts considerable effort into promoting the Eriskay Pony and spread knowledge of this wonderful pony. The Society takes stands at equine events to promote the Eriskay Pony, and has worked hard to ensure there are Eriskay Pony classes in as many shows as possible as well as staging our own Eriskay Pony breed shows. In addition, the Society does demonstrations of the versatility of the Eriskay Pony at events such as the Blair Castle International Horse trials.
The Eriskay Pony Studbook is maintained by the Society and the Society is recognised for the purposes of issuing horse passports in accordance with EU regulation.
