This charming video was made for our seventh anniversary and it is a the true tale of how we started Shetland Pony Club.   We are now in our 10th year and the ponies are more popular than ever.  We hope you enjoy our story.   From Rosemary.

Shetland Pony Club is the leading provider of Shetland Pony experiences in the UK, uniquely offering riding and a pony share membership scheme for children from the age 2½ – 10 years old. Our ponies are lead by our trained staff and so it is easy and safe for all children to join in. No experience is necessary to start riding with us.

Based at a stylish ranch on our private estate in Cobham, Surrey, we will introduce your children to riding and ponies in a safe and gentle way. We are fully insured, registered and licensed by the local authority and committed to the highest standard of pony welfare. We are approved by the Association of British Riding Schools and operate to their standards. Our senior staff are also DBS checked and are trained in first aid and child safeguarding.  We are members of the Equestrian Employers Association and Charter Members of the Children and Nature Network.

Our well-trained Shetlands and experienced staff are on hand to help you enjoy many fun-filled days getting to know your pony in the beautiful English countryside.


Our aim at Shetland Pony Club is to introduce children and parents to ponies in a fun and safe way with no pressure. We have many years experience of successfully introducing children to the fun of riding Shetland ponies and have given countless children their first pony ride. Starting with just one Shetland pony in 2008 we now have eighteen waiting to welcome you.

As farmers in Surrey for three generations we have access to private woods and meadows. Our visitors are amazed how beautiful their county, so close to London, really is. We encourage parents, children and ponies to regularly enjoy being outdoors together in our beautiful environment.

Watch as your child develops a special bond with their very first pony.

Together we will create childhood memories that will last a lifetime.

Ponies are part of an English childhood … we hope you will share some special times with us. Find out more about riding with us
