5 cool cobs you’ll want in your stable

While Horse & Hound does not feel that it is appropriate for owners to be allowing potential buyers to view their horses while the government’s emergency rules limiting movement are in place, we do wish to support the industry where we can. We hope buyers will continue to use our services to browse horses for sale and make initial enquiries via phone and email, so that the market can get back to normal as quickly as possible after the lockdown is lifted.

Are you looking for a horse that you can do a bit of everything with, while being reasonably robust and low maintenance to look after?

While we can’t promise that all cobs will fit this description, there are many out there that do, so take a look at our pick of cobs for sale on the Horse & Hound website this week.
