Crossbreeds with the Thoroughbred made a special section in the stud book for part bred, also known as a sport horse. These are good show jumpers, eventers, and steeplechasers. The rise of the mechanization, the appearance of the automobile and the uses of these horses in the World War I and II led to a dramatically decline of the breed.
The British Cleveland Bay Horse Society was established in 1883 and one year later was published the first stud book. During the 19th century, many Cleveland Bays were exported from England to the USA, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Russia, and Europe. Each country has formed its own Society and they all agree that the status of the breed is critical with 550 Cleveland Bay alive worldwide, of which 220 are mares. Queen Elizabeth II had a great role in saving the breed in England. She was a patron of the Society and in 1984 acted as its president.
The Cleveland Bay is used as shown, police and riding horse, for driving, fox hunting, able to carry a man weighing 110 kg all day and jumping over difficult obstacles. They competed in show jumping in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, in 1968 Mexico City Olympics and in the 1976 Montreal Olympics in Canada. Many Cleveland Bays are used worldwide to improve other breeds by crossbreeding.. So do not go anywhere, stay on horse-games.org and play thousand of free horse, pony and other animal games.
