Section A

Welsh Mountain Ponies should be shown in as natural a state as possible. However, very thick, long manes may be discreetly thinned, one long thin plait is usually put at the top of the mane behind the ear, the reason being to show off the line of the throat.

The long hairs under the jaw and those protruding from the ear may be trimmed off - leaving as natural a line as possible, the whiskers around the muzzle may be shortened.

The tail should look natural. A tail bandage will work wonders if the hairs at the top of the tail are very bushy.

Section B

It is recommended that Welsh Ponies are shown unplaited and, like a Mountain Pony, it should be realised that too much trimming and pulling of manes and tails detracts from their native pony character.

Sections C and D

Welsh Cobs and Ponies of Cob Type, like the Welsh Mountain Pony, should be shown in as natural a state as possible.
