This is Mister Benn, the dales x cob extraordinaire!

Last year we showed with some success at local level, with Ben being crowned driving type champion and second in the mountain and moorland. we know he shouldn't have really been entered as he's not pure dales, nor is he registered as his breeding I pretty much unsure!
This year, I'd like to have a go at entering some qualifiers for larger shows, but am stuck as to what we should enter. I'd like to do traditional cob classes - but only see coloureds in this class, is it only for coloureds?

Any ideas welcome, Victoria sponge and tea on offer :)

I can't figure out how to get the pictures up, not just the link. Sorry!

Every time I google traditional show cob its just coloured cobs! :( will I stick out like a sore thumb for the wrong reasons with a solid coloured cob?

I always thought:
coloured, long haired types = traditional cob classes
solid coloured, hogged and trimmed = show cob classes

I stand to be corrected though, never having owned one!

I'd say he's much more M&M type, papers or not!
I agree


Most local or RC shows don't require a pony to be registered with a breed society for M&M classes. The only thing is if you were to win a class and qualify for one of the larger shows you may find the pony wouldn't be eligible to enter if not registered.
