The Cleveland Bay Horse Society of North America was founded in 1885 and by 1907 had registered 2000 stallions and mares. Imported as superb coach horses, interest in the breed waned as the world became more mechanized but was briefly revived in the 1930's when Alexander Mackay-Smith imported founding stock for hunters. 

According to our latest 2017 census data; there are 192 purebred Cleveland Bays in the United States and Canada.  Cleveland Bay horses compete in all disciplines of horsemanship and can be registered with many breed and performance organizations around the world.  The CBHSNA recognizes Cleveland Bays with at least 1/8th blood and with papers indicating CB ancestry.  

The Society maintains a census of all Cleveland Bay horses in North America which include both purebred and part-bred Cleveland Bay horses.   This census data includes birth information, sire/dam, percentage CB,  and geographic location.  The census also records and lists any and all breed registrations of each horse as applicable.  

It is the mission of the Society to promote the Cleveland Bay Horse, preserve its

heritage and ensure its future.  We wish to extend a sincere thank you for visiting our site!
