Lifetime Award Requirements

The Lifetime Achievement Award program was established to recognize Welsh who have excelled through their own show ring performance and for those whose offspring have excelled in such a way as to have allowed the sire or dam to have a significant and lasting impact on the breed and for the breeders and owners of these animals.  Points must be earned at WPCSA sanctioned shows.  Legion of Merit, Award of Excellence and Order of the Dragon awards are reserved for purebred Welsh.  Individual Award of Honour, Award of Distinction and Order of the Centaur are for Half-Welsh and Part-bred.  Sire and dam awards for Award of Honour, Award of Distinction and Order of the Centaur are to recognize purebred and Half-Welsh sires and dams.
