The British Sport Cob
Tenros Stables noted a need for a more sport built cob, and as thus set about creating their own breed that they have titled the British Sport Cob, this club is for breeders of this new breed. We will be using this club to list any members sales, let members register etc.
The British Sports Cob is intended to be a cross between a warmblood and a cob, and should retain the honest workman like appearance of the cob, while taking athletic influence from the warmblood side. Depending on type depends on how much feathering should be present, as well as having rules on presentation of the mane and tail. They always possess a gentle eye, and typically have a calm personality - a horse that is overly hot is seen as a poor option. Equally however they should prove to be relatively sturdy and self sufficient, only needing rugging during the harshest of weather conditions.
The Ridden type of this breed excels in all English competitions (Showjumping, Cross Country, Dressage etc), and can be any colour, though there is a noted preference for horses with a lot of flash to them. They should always have presence in the arena, and should always possess an athletic build, while still retaining the cob appearance. They should never have any feathering on their legs, and it is acceptable to clip light feathering. In hand showing the mane can be left neat and unbraided or braided, the tail should never be braided however. The tail may be evened off at the tips but should never be shortened. An over long back is seen as a conformation flaw Tenros Spring Charmer
Light Driven Type
There should be minimal feathering, as in the ridden type, and good members of this type will always have a flashy high stepping gait on the front end - rather akin to the hackney horse. It is desirable for this type to retain solid colours, to make it easier for matching teams to be presented. The tail may be left long and braided or else trimmed short, the mane should always be braided for show purposes. A longer back is seen as less of a conformation flaw then in the ridden type.
Heavy Driven Type
A heavier version of the Light Driven Type, light feathering is also acceptable in this type. Like the light driven type solid colours are preferred to make it easier to form teams. Their tails should always be kept short and unbraided with the manes always shown braided. They should have the most noticable of roman noses and have a totally placid honest workman like appearance.
