The Traditional Gypsy Cob is bred as a breed which is particularly suitable for a diverse range of disciplines. We strive for horses which, due to their inner values, temperament, ride-ability, conformation, movement, ability to perform and their soundness are suitable as both performance and pleasure horses.
Healthy horses are also a clear aim for the breed. It is important that horses are free from hereditary diseases and other health defects, which may impair their use for breeding or as a general riding horse for all the family.
Stallions wishing to compete at TGCA classes including Quest shows and TOYS MUST first obtain a performance evaluation.
Please complete and submit the evaluation application form.
The performance evaluation is not our endorsement of the quality of the stallion, rather it is about his manners, handling and discipline. The TGC breed temperament is of a calm, kind disposition and the TGCA will not tolerate any stallions displaying bad manners, an ill temper or being generally unruly including bad handling.
No DNA or vetting is required for a performance evaluation and no covering certificates will be issued.
Applicants will be required to attend one TGCA evaluation day.
In the event that you are not awarded a performance evaluation then you may only present again at the discretion of the Stallion evaluation committee and at a venue of their choice.
Without this performance evaluation Stallions of 4 years and over MAY NOT compete in TGCA classes.
If a stallion is not on our website, then it is not a licensed TGCA stallion.
