Rasbeschrijving van het moederstamboek UK

Dit is de rasbeschrijving waar de fokker zich aan moet houden; deze is onvertaald weergegeven, omdat de vertaling het domein van de fokker is.
 Voor degenen die de Engelse taal niet voldoende beheersen, hebben we ook de Nederlandse vertaling; onder alle omstandigheden is de rasbeschrijving van het moederstamboek leidend.

In general
Section A's are hardy, spirited and pony-like and do not exceed 12 h.h. (121.9 cms). Section B's are similar, but larger, not exceeding 13.2 h.h. (137.2 cms), and with more riding pony qualities. Section C is the Welsh Pony of Cob Type. Section D is the Welsh Cob.; the main difference is size: Section C's do not exceed 13.2 h.h. (137.2 cms) while Section D's are larger.


Section C: The Welsh Pony of Cob Type
The Welsh Pony of Cob Type, Section C, is the stronger counterpart of the Welsh Pony, but with Cob blood. Their true worth as a dual purpose animal has been fully realised in recent years, and their numbers have increased accordingly. Active, surefooted and hardy, they are ideal for so many purposes both for adults and children. Like all the Welsh Breeds they are natural jumpers and they also excel in harness, there are in fact few things that they cannot be used for. The height should not exceed 13.2 h.h. (137.2 cms).


Section D: The Welsh Cob
Aptly described as “the best ride and drive animal 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 “hard 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 as far as possible in 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. In recent years they have had great success in the international driving world. Their abilities in all spheres are now fully recognised throughout the world. The height should exceed 13.2 h.h. (137 cms); no upper limit.
