Breed: Cob type
Colour: Dapple Grey
JB is a true all–rounder and enjoys both dressage and jumping. He currently can jump about 90cm and can work to Elementary level dressage.
He came to us as a 6 year old and was originally born in Ireland. When he first came to the farm there was lots of pondering on what the JB actually stood for… from Jay Bird to Justin Beiber. Now he’s officially known as DCF Jelly Bean!
JB is ridden by many different levels of rider and he always loves to please. He’s a smart boy and has taken part in our Quadrille team and official dressage competitions!
About the Cob
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, JB is a dapple grey – a very pretty colour pattern with darker grey hairs ringing around lighter colour hair.
