When you adopt Robin Hood you’ll receive our beautiful adoption pack which makes a perfect pony gift for anyone who loves ponies. You’ll also receive quarterly email updates and immediate access to Robin Hood’s own website. It’s full of things to learn and do and is appropriate for children of all ages. You can also organise to visit Robin Hood at his home in the Surrey countryside.

Adopting Robin Hood is a simple way for you to support our charitable work with ponies. The funds raised go directly to give a better life to more ponies by supporting our chosen charity, The Horse Trust.

Robin Hood’s Story

Robin Hood was rescued and brought to Shetland Pony Club where he has thrived with proper care. He is now in good health and lives with his friends at the Shetland Pony Club ranch. He loves being part of the herd and being well cared for. Although Robin Hood can’t be ridden, he loves to join in the fun, and is a regular visitor to local fetes and events

Where does the money go to?

All the proceeds from your adoption directly to support the welfare of ponies. We pay to look after Robin Hood, so that 100% of the proceeds from your pony adoption go directly to supporting our chosen charity, which currently is The Horse Trust

Are you a charity?

Whilst Shetland Pony Club limited is not a charity we are passionate about Shetland ponies and want to support ponies in need. We have rescued several Shetland ponies including Cupcake who lived with us until he was over 30 years old, and now Robin Hood. We also gave a forever retirement home to Shetland pony Falkland, an Army Mascot pony for 26 years. Through our work and love of ponies, we want to give a better life to more Shetland ponies by supporting established horse charities
