Welsh A = Welsh pony
Welsh B = Welsh mountain pony
Welsh C = Welsh pony of cob type, max height 13.2hh
Welsh D = Welsh Cob, over 13.2hh, currently no max height.

Afraid I don't know the height specs for A's and B's!

ETA = Breed soc says A's and B's are other way round! I'd go with the breed soc!!!

It may say D's have no upper height limit but to me anything over 15.2 isn't a D. They loose all type (generally) after that height and look like (albeit, classy) hunters.

I agree, the defining feature of the Welsh D for me is the pony head and beyond a certain height they turn too horsey and grown up looking.

Welsh A = Welsh Mountain pony max 12hh



Welsh B = Welsh pony, max I *think* is 13.2hh although some people say smaller


Welsh C = Smaller version of a welsh D, max height is 13.2hh.


Welsh D = aka welsh cob. There is no upper limit but most are no taller than 15.2hh. Danaway stud have a stallion that is 16hh though


Hope that helps
