Cleveland Bay

From Horse

As its name suggests, the Cleveland Bay emanates from the Cleveland area of northeast England. Without doubt it is Britain's oldest breed of horse and has been fixed in type much longer than the official UK's breed registry foundation date suggests.

The Pure-Bred Cleveland Bay is a very intelligent horse with a sensible temperament. They possess a strong character which, if mishandled can be ruined.They have plenty of bone and substance, are hardy, long lived and have tremendous stamina.
