H Greasley - We joined the TGCA in 2017 after qualifying for toys 2018 at our first county show. We spent may-August 2018 travelling the country showing under TGCA affiliated classes to gain a bit of experience before TOYS. We arrived at toys very nervous with no clue what to expect, we were warmly welcomed by all of those around us and thoroughly enjoyed our first stay away show. I cannot fault the services (overstamping & memberships turned around in a few days). We have met some fantastic people (and horses) in our very short time with TGCA and very grateful this exists for our breed.

You can guarantee by competing in a TGCA affiliated class you have a judge with a whole wealth of knowledge and experience with the breed helping you to better yourself and your horses, we’ve had nothing but great feedback.

You've given us a reason to justify hours of scrubbing feather and early starts - thank you for everything.

Looking forward to TOYS 2019!

Johnny Simpson - I have been going to TOYS for a few years now and to be honest it just gets better and better each year! I started stewarding at first, and was really impressed with how well the Show was put together. Now as a judge, I can see and understand how much hard work and dedication Andrea Briggs and her team put into this amazing Show. The TGCA Society is to be commended for its support towards its members. I am proud to be a panel judge for this Society.

Theresa Fryer- Having been with the TGCA since inception, I am so proud to see where the Association is today. The promotion of this amazing breed by the TGCA has brought the TGC to the attention of the horse world as being not only a native breed but a truly wonderful cob that will turn their hoof to any discipline.

Val Pennygar - Andrea Briggs works tirelessly on behalf of TGCA so that our beautiful Cobs are recognised as a breed we owe her everything as if she had not started this years ago they would not have the status they now have, to be part of the TGCA is like being in a large family where everyone looks out for everyone else I absolutely love it , there is not another association like it , Andrea Briggs you are a diamond and here’s to many more years of the TGCA.

Ali KerleyI’ve shown ponies for many years, mainly M&M¿s, and have always had coloured ponies also, since childhood. But I was new to owning and showing a traditional and can honestly say that the TGCA is one of the most helpful and friendly societies out there! Newcomers are welcome and encouraged, there is a lot to learn and advice is always available. The society does so much to raise the profile of these wonderful animals and showcase their versatility and willing temperaments. There is something for everyone, and I would encourage anyone who is lucky enough to own a traditional gypsy cob to register their animal and become a member themselves, you won’t look back!

Helen Dunwell- Communication is immediate with all the fact and friendliness. No question is too much trouble to answer. Lovely, friendly and fantastic society. Extremely helpful to everyone. Very supportive as a member and non-member. They welcome everyone to the TGCA. They promote the breed to differing levels of competitor and hard to reach competitors. They support rescue cases and started ?give a cob a job?. To be able to support all our TGCA fur babies. They are a family and feel privileged and proud to be welcomed and feel part of this amazing society
