Spotlight On…The Cleveland Bay Horse Society

As its name suggests, the Cleveland Bay emanates from the Cleveland area of North East England. It is Britain’s oldest breed of horse  and The Cleveland Bay Horse Society (CBHS) is a Registered Charity (293872) that regulates, promotes and protects Pure and Part Bred Cleveland Bay Horse.

They say…

Our Mission statement is to promote all that is best in the Cleveland Bay horse.  To preserve, develop and strengthen the breed for future generations to enjoy and it has charitable status in this regard (Charity number 293872).

The Cleveland Bay is England’s oldest breed of horse with a history that goes beyond a time when records were kept. It is an incredibly versatile horse that can turn its hoof to all disciplines, a legacy of its need to adapt through the ages to the changing face of civilisation. It is a horse with substance, activity, stamina and a temperament that is unsurpassed by any other breed of horse.

The Society maintains a worldwide stud book for Pure Bred Cleveland Bays as it has since 1884 and since the mid 1970’s a worldwide Register for Part Bred Cleveland Bays for those horses with at least 12.5% Cleveland Bay blood.
