The Welsh pony of Cob Type is a stronger counterpart of the Welsh Mountain pony but with Cob blood. Their true worth as a dual purpose animal has been fully realized in recent years and their numbers have increased accordingly. Active, sure-footed and hardy they are ideal for so many purposes, both for aadults and children. Ideal for competetive events, both under saddle and in harness, a sure-footed mount for pony trekking and hunting. As there are few things they cannot do, a Welsh Pony of Cob Type, Section C, is the perfect all-around family pony. His origin is well documented; beginning in Medieval times when he was described as "being fleet of foot, a good jumper, a good swimmer and able to carry a substantial weight on his back". He was part of the essential string of mounts for a British Knight. A Welsh Cob, 'rouncy', was used to lead the mighty fighting horses, known as 'destries', whose natural gait was the trot. The Welsh Cob had to cover great distances, matching the great war horse stride for stride. To this day the forceful, ground-covering trot of the Welsh Cob is legendary. Thanks soo much everyone for supporting my Welsh Mountain pony Dakota during his HOTM run so far! I hope everyone is enjoying their week! Maria, Dakota N the girls
