The Cleveland Bay is probably the oldest British breed, developed from a packhorse known as the Chapman horse. In the 17th century, Andalusian and Barb blood was introduced to produce a fine carriage horse - named the Cleveland Bay. Motorized transport saw the breed decline, but when crossed with the thoroughbred, the breed produces excellent heavyweight hunters and carriage horses.

Origin: Yorkshire, England.

Colour: Bay, small star allowed.

Height: between 15.2 and 16hh.

Conformation: large head on long neck, long deep-girthed body, short, strong legs with no feather.

Character: intelligent, calm natured but can be 'independent thinkers'.

Uses:  riding, driving.
