Cleveland Bay owners urged to help raise awareness
Owners of Cleveland Bays are being urged to ride their horse on Sunday September 9th as part of a plan to try and raise awareness of the breed.
The Cleveland Bay is a breed of horse that first originated in England during the 17th century and was named after its colouring and the Cleveland district of Yorkshire.
It is currently on the Rare Breed Survival Trust critical list with only 33 foals registered in 2011.
As a result, riders are encouraged to try and raise money to help the breed through a sponsorship programme, Horse and Hound reports.
A spokesman for the Rare Breed Survival Trust told the news provider that Cleveland Bays make superb riding horses, especially for those recreationally riding or part of social club.
The spokesman was quoted as saying: "And their calm temperament, ground covering paces and great stamina make it a talented hunter or endurance horse."
