15th May 2024


Our ‘normal’ show cob championship caters for cobs who are between 148cm and 155cm, and maxi cobs who stand over 155cm tall.


We have now included a championship for show cobs not exceeding 148cm. So, if you have a mini cob who is hogged and trimmed, you can show them in both in-hand and ridden classes.


Do you have a hairy cob? Then you too, have both an in-hand class and a ridden class (same as last year). Our traditional championship is for ANY HEIGHT, shown natural with full mane and tail and feathered legs.


Q: “I have a Welsh Cob, which class do I pick?”

A: None of the cob championships! A Welsh Section D is said to be ‘of cob type’, but these fire-breathing dragons are classed as mountain & moorlands (often referred to as ‘natives’ i.e. a native breed to the UK).


Q: “I have a part-bred cob, I don’t know which class to enter?”

A: Well firstly, a true cob is a type rather than a breed, so it is either a cob or it is not. If you mean a part-bred Welsh Cob, then that is a part-bred native, not a cob!


Q: “My traditional cob is 10hh, is there a class for him?”
A: Yes, traditional cobs can be any height.

Q: “What about coloured cobs?”
A: Buckle up and read on….


Remember we said we would include ‘other coloureds’ for 2024?

This year, our championships will include both in-hand and ridden classes for,

  • piebald and skewbald horses exceeding 148cm.
  • dun, roan, spotted, palomino and odd-coloured horses exceeding 148cm.
  • piebald, skewbald, dun, roan, spotted, palomino and odd-coloured ponies 148cm & under.

Essentially, horses over 148cm will be split into piebald/skewbald and ‘others’, ponies under 148cm will be combined.
