Equestrian Club of Wales chief executive, Paul Taylor, has put a spotlight on the popularity of the bittsaler, a breed of horse bred for speed and agility.

He explained: “The bittsalaer is a little bit of an underdog.
It is a really good horse, and I think the popularity is going to be great, particularly for people who love to ride and enjoy being out in the open, as well as being good at bridling.”
The bitty is a bit of a little dog.
It has a bit more personality than the other breeds.
It can be a bit like a dog, but it’s a bit larger.
I think people are really drawn to this breed because of its agility, and because of the way it runs. “
The breed is not all that well known in Britain.
It’s very, very good at agility, too.”
