About Bertie:

Height: 14hh

Breed: Cob

Colour: Dark Bay

Gender: Gelding

Bertie is a sweet bay gelding who is a popular horse at the riding school as he is very kind natured.

He has three correct paces and is supper comfortable as he moves. Even though Bertie isn't very tall he is very stocky so can carry our bigger riders.

Berties favourite thing to do is eat so we have to keep him on a bit of a diet. 

He's a very friendly fellow, and popular with plenty of the volunteers, he enjoys the attention of being groomed and fussed over! His coat colour is bay, meaning his body is brown and mane and tail black. The white marking down his head is a  blaze, and is a common marking on horses. 

About Cobs

You'll often see horses and ponies referred too as Cob-types, especially in the UK, and sometimes in America. A Cob is traditionally a horse or pony of a stout build, with strong bones, large joints and a steady disposition. There are quite a number of Cob breeds, but they'll all generally feature the same build - relatively small and compact, with somewhat short legs.

Cob-type breeds are very popular, especially for activities like Riding for the Disabled, they are generally responsive, but with a calm temperament, shorter stature and steady, comfortable gaits. They come in a variety of colours, Berties is a dark bay.
