Eight trustees of the Welsh Pony and Cob Society (WPCS) have stood down after the society found they had been nominated without being formally seconded.

An emergency general meeting was called on 28 January, but a bid to reapprove the trustees failed to gain the required 75% of the votes.

An election will be held for all eight positions at the WPCS annual meeting on 31 March.
