Why are Shetland Ponies so small?

Join Rosemary in our latest pony advice video, which answers your frequently asked questions about our ponies.This week Rosemary answers your question – why are Shetland ponies so small?  Watch the video to find out more.

In this week’s video you’ll find out:

Why are Shetland ponies so small?

Shetland ponies originate from the Shetland Isles, where there are no trees for shelter and the weather is wet, cold, and windy. Being small means that Shetland ponies are able to adapt and survive the harsh conditions.

Are our Shetlands fully grown?

Yes, our ponies are fully grown, many people think they are babies or foals however most of our Shetlands are teenagers now. We don’t have any young foals or young stock at Shetland Pony Club.

How to measure a Shetland pony?

Shetland ponies are measured from the ground to the top of their wither. You measure them in inches. This is different from other horses or ponies who are normally measured in hands. Our smallest pony, Snowdrop, is only 32 inches high! Balmoral and Mufasa are our biggest ponies at 42 inches high.

Review of 2021 at Shetland Pony Club

Join Rosemary as she looks back and reviews the best of 2021 at Shetland Pony Club.

Review of 2021 at Shetland Pony Club.

After a long period of lockdown from November 2020 we were delighted to start riding again at The Ranch in March 2021. Despite the challenges of this year we managed to have lots of pony fun and riding. We were thrilled to be able to go ahead with our legendary Easter Egg Hunts, Summer Camps and Halloween Pumpkin Rides. Watch the video to find out more!

As you watch this year’s review video can you answer these questions:

What happened on the opening day at The Ranch?

We had a cold surprise on our opening day at The Ranch but that didn’t stop us or the ponies from riding. The ponies still had their warm, fluffy coats and were ready for any weather.

How many new ponies arrived this year?

We’ve had some new pony additions to Shetland pony Club this year, including Trooper who travelled all the way from the Shetland Isles.

What did the farmer plant to cheer everyone up?

As well as our amazing wildflower meadows, we were lucky to also have some new, bright and cheery flowers at The Ranch this year. Can you guess what flowers they were?

Thank you so much for all your support in 2021.
