Produced on a quarterly basis, the newsletter, New Forest Nickers, keeps members up-to-date on Society happenings, as well as New Forest Pony happenings throughout North America. 


Critical information such as rule changes, upcoming deadlines and Board discussions and decisions are included in the newsletter.  And, of course, member updates are most welcome additions. 


This is where NFPSNA members can connect with each other, share triumphs and trials, and send in lots of great photos for publication. 

You’ll also find the most current Show Points in the quarterly newsletter, with a picture of the competitors, and even some updates on New Forest Newsmakers across the globe.
