The Traditional Cob Registry
Founded in Ireland, our mission is to preserve and promote the Traditional Cob originally bred in Ireland which was officially recognised in Ireland in 1998 as a native Irish breed under the breed name Irish Cob. In order to achieve our mission, we created an online platform that serves as a worldwide registration hub for Irish Cobs.
Registering all Traditional Cobs
Because our online platform also serves as a worldwide registration hub for all Traditional Cobs we also register Traditional Cobs under its breed name Traditional Cob and also under its breed type names Gypsy Cob, Mini Gypsy Cob, and Stepping Cob. It is fitting for Ireland to have an online platform that serves as a worldwide registration hub for all Traditional Cobs because the breed was originally bred by the nomadic traveller people of Ireland and Britain (now called Irish Travellers and UK Travellers) using mainly Irish-bred Traditional Cobs. Some of the most renowned Irish-bred Traditional Cob stallions that contributed to Irish and UK Traditional Cob breeding are The Lion King, The Road Sweeper, The Old Coal Horse, The Lob, and The Henry Horse.
