The Welsh Cob, a breed established in the fifteenth century, has become one of the most popular breeds in the world for riding and driving. Illustrated with colour pictures and laced with Welsh poetry, this book traces the development of the breed from its origins and that of its ancestor, the Welsh Mountain Pony.
