Cobs..

 Okay, i said to my friend the other day that at the moment, i really love cobs, and they would be my preferred horse if i got to choose one! And she turned round and said, you don't want a cob, they're horrible and you will totally regret buying one once you have it! 

But i really don't understand because every cob i have ridden have been so caring towards the rider? 

So, i was just wondering - what do you think about cobs?

I personally think they're fantastic! Especially for confidence boosting! x

Re: Cobs..

 Hi, I have a 4 year old Welsh SecD mare(Biddy) n a 17mth old coloured gypsy cob colt(Mystic) n both of them are brill, the  4 year olds a bit pushy as i spoilt her(1st horse, didnt kno ne better) n id nearly lost her to strangles, ive had her since she was 9/10mths old.

They both love cuddles n bum scratches, extra strong mints are a must..lol..

I always wanted an Arab, til i was looking on horse mart for a foal to buy n came across this scruffy but beautiful looking Welshie, it was love at first sight n it hasnt stopped..im sorry but ur friend is mad..

COBS ALL THE WAY!!!!

Re: Cobs..

 A cob is a perfect allrounder - I think so! They CAN jump :)
Also I wanted a cob, but instead I got an Appie, not thru choice but I love her:D

Re: Cobs..

All horse are special regardless of bred, personally I have a brill cob who can do a decent dressage test, show jump and xcountry with the very best of them and has a temperment to match. Some years ago i had a clinic with Luncinda Green and she fell in love with her so that says it all for me. Equally I have a retired TB chestnut mare who is the sweetest nature you could ask for, albeit she is a worrier but completely goes against what is generally thought of TB Chestnuts Mares. So at the end of the day as long as the rider and horse suit each other there is no wrong or right as long as you can enjoy each other!

 My boy would carry me to the end of the world and back if I asked him to 

My cob lends me his wings and together we can fly ♥

Re: Cobs..

The most fantastic horse I ever have owned was a Gypsy Cob called Tonka I had him for 21 years died aged 30 in 2010 and would exchange the horse I have now for another. You dont know how good they were until they have gone, ok he had a few tricks which frightened the life out of other riders, but I would not have been sold him by the riding school if other people could ride him as he had only 4 riders me being one. Became so much apart of the family and stood guard over me when I went into a coma for 3/4 hr. Tonka taught me everything he knew and it was my very good luck in being his person never can own a horse.

Gypsy Gold does not chink & glitter.It gleams in the sun and neighs in the dark.Tonka & Lara my beautiful horses RIP, Nelson,Chloe & Kitty the cats.

Re: Cobs..

I say everyone has their own choices and preferences and I have nothing against people who choose a cob but ...

 

I'm not a fan ...

 

They're not the look I'm after, they don't have the paces I like and they're not built for the job I want my horses to do.

 

I would always have a warmblood that's just my preference. I prefer a horse with good breeding, big power gaits and jump and a sharp brain. And I'm just not into all that mane, tail and feather !!!

 

Everyone has a horse for a different reason, and I think that's why some people don't like cobs. And there's nothing wrong with not liking the look of them, I don't know why this is a problem. People say it's still a horse but if you look at it that way ... I don't like the look of every person I see on the street even though they're all people, I chose my dog because I wanted something small and fluffy ... wouldn't have been happy with an alsation, it's still a dog but not the look I'm after. Hope I'm making my point clear.

 

At the end of the day I think we should respect others preferences without making nasty comments ... keep your opinions to yourself (which is what I do ...) there's no need to hurt people or ram your opinions down other people's throats ...

Re: Cobs..

I love cobs - I love horses - so any horse, cob warmblood is ok with me!

It depends on the horse in question - if it is a horrible cob that wants to buck youi off or a warmblood that takes care of you - I would go for the warmblood but visa versa I would go for the cob
