  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Jake, once settled, would be a happy companion but he is also a great happy hacker in company. Due to his blindness in his right eye he needs someone understanding and patient to build his trust but in return he has loads of love to give. He can be hacked out everyday or once a month, it doesn't faze him.

  • Details of the tack used to ride the horse

    Full cheek snaffle bridle. Leather saddle and riser pad.

Relevant health or lameness issues

No lamness issues. Health has always been fine. I have had no issues with him except from his blindness in his right eye caused by Uvetis. It was decided with vet advice not to remove his eye as it causes him no pain and would cause more stress going through the procedure.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

I get a vet to check on his eye once a year for my own ease of mind but other than that no on going treatment.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

I have had no problems with Jake in traffic.

Please describe your horses behaviour when hacking out alone and in company

Jake definitely prefers hacking in company and is happy to follow other horses. On his own he is not very confident and it takes a lot of patience and persuasion to get him to go by himself - but it is possible! I would say he is happier with others though.

Details of any individual behavioural traits which may influence the type of person best suited to take on the horse

Jake is a lovely boy but can be a little jumpy due to his blind eye. Once you are used to this though it is not bad at all. I can ride along with a loose rein but if the rider is nervous he will feel this and become more jumpy. Therefore, i think he would suit a slightly more confident rider although i have ridden out with complete beginners on him before.

Details of the activities that the horse must not participate in due to previous injury

No

Details of any problems when being ridden

He can nap if he is on his own. Other than that he can be slightly spooky at times but no nasty bucks or rears.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

No

Need to be stabled at night?

No he can live out all year round

Need to be put on restricted grazing to limit weight gain?

No

Welsh Section D, Cob

The Welsh Cob (Section D) is the largest size within the Welsh Pony and Cob breed registries. They must be taller than 13.2 hands(54 inches, 137 cm), with no upper height limit. They are used as riding animals for both adults and children, and are also used for driving. They are known for their hardiness and gentle nature.

Though they are the tallest and stockiest of the Welsh sections, the head remains full of pony character, with large eyes, and neat ears. The legs may be relatively short, also akin to pony proportions. Mature stallionshave somewhat cresty necks, those of mares are generally leaner. Like the section C, they have powerful, extravagant action. Greycoloring is rarer in the section D cob than other types of Welsh ponies, but bold white markingsare common.

Today, the Section D is best known for use in harness driving, but they are also shown under saddle and in hand. Like other Welsh ponies, Cobs are also exhibited over fences as hunters and jumpers.
