Cleveland Bay History

The Cleveland Bay horses derive from Northern England. They are considered the oldest breed of horse coming from Britain. They were popular during the Yorkshire Dales era, which were also known as the Chapman Horses. During the Middle Ages, located in England, the local monasteries were responsible for much of the heavy breeding that occurred during that time. They were used to carry the monasteries back and forth from work each day. They went on to have the blood lines introduced from Barb horse decent sometime during the seventeen hundreds. The result was that the Cleveland Bay breed would go on to be recognized as a breed that was quick, versatile, and very easy on the eyes. There are currently two different variations of this horse style; one is the Chapman and the other is called the Yorkshire Coach Horse Type.
