Join Rosemary in this week’s video as she answers your question, are Shetlands expensive to keep?
We often get asked the question if it’s cheaper to keep a Shetland pony rather than a bigger horse, as Shetlands are much smaller. Rosemary explains what you need to keep a Shetland pony happy and if it’s expensive to keep one.
What do I need to keep a Shetland and are they expensive to keep?
Rosemary explores what you would need to keep a Shetland and if it is any cheaper than keeping a bigger horse. To keep a Shetland you need:
- A grass field with at least one acre
- Shelter or a stable
- Hard feed and hay
- Farrier, to keep your ponies hooves trimmed
- Vet in case there are any health issues
- Saddles and bridles for riding
