The ASPC/AMHR/ASPR Royalty program is a vital part of the American Shetland Pony Club, Inc.’s (ASPC) commitment to both its young members and the promotion of the club, its breeds and activities.
Budget for royalty travel, expenses and sponsored activities is limited so the Royalty Committee came up with a unique fundraiser for 2012 that has been a huge hit – the Royalty Resale Shop.
The ASPC/AMHR/ASPR Royalty Resale Shop offers a place for members of these registries (American Shetland Pony Club, American Miniature Horse Registry and American Show Pony Registry) to put their show clothes and accessories or other horse-related goods up for re-sale. The booth features gently worn show clothes, boots, hats and more as well as other gently used horse-y and horse-show related items – from toys to decorative items and more.
Consignors receive 85% of the sale from the items they donate while the royalty program gets to keep 15% to help with their expenses. To date, several generous consignors have donated more than the minimum 15% to royalty while some have even donated their entire sale amounts. Other donors have also opted to give a percentage of their sale to the Royalty Program but designate another percentage to benefit the association’s Youth Program.
The Royalty Resale Shop is a win-win. You can reduce clutter and work to clean out your closets and tack trunks while your support helps benefit the Royalty and youth.
To date, the Royalty Resale Shop has been set up at the Youth Clinic & Jr. Judging Event hosted by the Illinois Miniature Horse Owners Association in March and at the Central State Pony Association’s four star competition in June in Illinois. Many members and families have scored some incredible deals on show clothes, fun items and more!
Plans are underway for the Royalty Resale Shop to be set up at the 2012 Congress for your shopping convenience. Presently, the committee is looking for volunteers to help man the booth during limited shifts when the Congress hits Tulsa, OK, from Aug. 7-11. If you can assist, please contact Brenda Prince at
. You may also contact her about donating items to the resale shop.
