How to join Shetland Pony Club Online?
Shetland Pony Club Online is our way of helping you get through these unusual times. It enables you and your children to have pony fun and learning that you would normally have had at The Ranch.
We have created this website for free, but many of you have asked about donations. If you would like to support our work you can make a small donation through the fun “Buy me a Coffee” scheme. Just click on the link to donate.
We hope you’ll try our fun new Online Pony Club. Do let us know if you’re enjoying it.
