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.
