Join Rosemary in this week’s advice video as she answers your question, do Shetland ponies need horseshoes?
Our ponies don’t generally need horseshoes, this is called having a ‘barefoot pony’. It’s something that is becoming increasingly popular in the horsey world.
Why don’t our Shetland ponies need horseshoes?
- Shetland ponies have good strong, sturdy hooves that don’t often crack
- The children who ride are lightweight and don’t put pressure on the pony’s hooves
- The ground that we ride on is soft and doesn’t have stones
