Wales has a rich heritage of native ponies. The Welsh Pony Stud Book is divided into four sections. The Welsh Mountain Pony (Sec.A) was produced by the Arab crossed with the Celtic Pony. The Welsh Mountain Pony was crossed with a small Thoroughbred called Merlin to produce the Welsh Pony. The Welsh Pony (Section C) and the Welsh Cob (Section D) differ only in size and were probably the result of crosses of the Welsh Mountain Pony with Spanish horses and possibly the now extinct Old Welsh Carthorse.
