Code of Practice for the Welfare of Welsh Ponies and Cobs 

Owning and caring for a Welsh Pony or Cob can be a source of great enjoyment, but it is also a big responsibility that requires long-term caring and financial commitment.

The Animal Welfare Act 2006 ("the Act") requires you to ensure that any horse or pony for which you are responsible, whether on a permanent or a temporary basis:

  • has a suitable environment to live in
  • has a healthy diet
  • is able to behave normally
  • has appropriate company, and
  • is protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease
