Welsh Cob Description
  The Welsh Cob has been in existence for centuries. At one time, it was used primarily as a war and farm pony because of its enormous strength. Today, it is used primarily in the harness. The Welsh Cob is a sturdy little pony that is becoming more popular in the show ring as well as in various competitive events, including dressage. The Welsh Cob is a wonderful cross with Thoroughbred horses, Arabians and Quarter Horses to improve bone and hardiness. The Welsh Cob can be any color, but both skewbald and piebald are not allowed. It has a long neck, cute, well-placed ears and large eyes. It has muscular hind and fore legs which makes the Welsh Cob very powerful.
