The Cleveland Bay was produced in Yorkshire, England, the name "Cleveland" referring to the Vale of Cleveland in Yorkshire, and "Bay" to its color (always bay in color, no white markings - occasionally a small star). The breed that is genetically consistent credits the two hundred years of pure breeding. Standing at 16-17 hands and weighing around 1200-1500 pounds the breed has muscled hindquarters, sloping shoulders, dense bone and sound durable feet with a smart calm disposition.
