The IKBPA- Our Founding

The International Kerry Bog Pony Association was founded in 2016 by a small group of Kerry Bog breeders. We exist to maintain and ensure the integrity of the records of each Kerry Bog Pony and any affairs that impact the preservation of the Kerry Bog Pony. To accomplish this purpose, the Association will utilize current scientific and administrative concepts and techniques to ensure all registrations and transfers are carried out according to the Rules and Regulations of the IKBPA, while verifying that the Rules and Regulations are applied to all individuals in a non-discriminatory manner.

We at the IKBPA realize that the breed and its members can benefit from the use of the most current scientific and technological advances. Such advances include blood testing, coat color confirmation, and DNA testing using the University of California Davis, America's leading DNA Laboratory.
