THE WELSH COB ( SECTION D )
The Welsh Cob (Section D)
Height: From 13.2hh. (137.2cm) to no upper height limit
Aptly described as the "best ride and drive horse in the World", the Welsh Cob has been evolved throughout many centuries for his courage, tractability and powers of endurance.
The general character is the embodiment of strength, hardiness and agility. The head shows great quality with pony character. Bold prominent eyes, a broad forehead and neat, well set ears. The body must be deep, on strong limbs with good "head wearing" joints and an abundance of flat bone. Action must be straight, free and forceful, the knees should be bent and then the whole foreleg extended from the shoulders and as far forward as possible at all paces, with the hocks well flexed, producing powerful leverage.
The Welsh Cob is a good hunter and a most competent performer in all competitive sports. Their abilities in all spheres are now fully recognised throughout the world.
