Our Shetland pony is the winner!
Creme Brulee was crowned the winner of the Face of Amazon Pets and received the main prize of a £1,500 Amazon Gift Card and a photoshoot with professional pet photographer Rachel Oates, images from which were featured on the Amazon.co.uk Pet Supplies Store.
“We are so proud of Creme Brulee, we knew he was special and destined for great things. His long blonde eyelashes and fluffy coat make him the ‘mane’ attraction at Shetland Pony Club, and he loves to dress up,” said Creme Brulee’s owner, Maddie Norris from Cobham, Surrey, who keeps Creme Brulee at nearby Shetland Pony Club. “He is going to love the ‘horseplay’ and attention from his win. We’ll buy some tasty pony treats and a rug for him from his Face of Amazon Pets winnings.”
“Creme Brulee was a delight to be photographed. He was so at ease in front of the camera showing off some of his best moves and he posed like a pro,” said Rachel Oates, Face of Amazon Pets photographer and judge. “From what I have seen, he is far from a one-trick pony and could well have a modelling career ahead of him.”
Adorable 21-year-old male Shetland pony Creme Brulee and his friends at Shetland Pony Club are available for children aged 3 – 10 years old to ride, by appointment only. Children can come and enjoy Starter Rides and Own a Pony Experiences at his home at: The Ranch, Cobham, Surrey where their motto of “Small Ponies…Big Dreams” really has come true.
