Section c

The Welsh section c is also known as the Welsh pony of Cob Type.

The Welsh Pony and Cob are closely related horse breeds including both pony and cob types, which originated in Wales in the United Kingdom.

The breed society  has four sections, primarily distinguished by height, but also by variations in type: the Welsh Mountain Pony (Section A), the Welsh Pony (Section B), the Welsh Pony of Cob Type (Sec C), and the Welsh Cob (Section D).

Welsh section c

By crossing the Welsh mountain pony or Welsh section A with the welsh section D or Welsh cob the breed was formed.

It is smaller than the Welsh cob standing no taller than 13.2 hands high (137cm 54 inches).

They are known for their strength, hardiness and gentle nature.

Unlike the Welsh pony (Section B), it is heavier and more cob-like and compact.

In the past, it was used for farmwork and in the slate quarries of North Wales.

It is a very strong and hardy pony with the ability to live outdoors all year round.

The typical colours are all solid of any colour.

Piebald and skewbald are not acceptable for registration.

The breed is an attractive horse to look at, with a small neat head and large alert eyes.

The neck is strong, thick and arched with sloping powerful shoulders. The back is short with muscular, powerful hindquarters.

The forelegs are straight and strong with moderate amount of feathering on the legs and short cannon bone.

They are known to be trustworthy, of a good disposition with even temperaments and friendly characters, but spirited and with great endurance, stamina, soundness, and high level of intelligence.

The breed is strong enough to carry lightweight adults and children.

They make an ideal riding pony, driving pony, trekking, trail riding, and hunter that can jump well.
