Advice on Pony Ownership

Parents often ask us all about buying and owning a Shetland pony.  When they find out how much it costs (the British Horse Society estimates that it costs about £7,000 per year); and what a big commitment it is, 365 days a year, they are often put off.

Is there an easier way to have a pony?

Yes – you can experience a pony of your own, the easy way, with Pony Share Membership at Shetland Pony Club. Learn to ride, build a bond with your pony, come regularly and enjoy pony fun in the countryside.

What is Pony Share Membership?

There are two types of Pony Share Memberships to enjoy:

  • Pony Membership – a pony of your own each week, 2 hours, from age 4+
  • Mini Membership – a pony of your own each week, 45 minutes, from age 3+

How does Pony Share Membership work?

Members come every week at the same time March – November (you can join at the start of a month) and then:

  • Enjoy a pony ride with your own pony and staff member to help you
  • Parents can join in, or children can be left if 5+
  • No need to worry about daily mucking out and feeding
  • No bills for vets, feeding, stabling, foot trimming and the equine dentist

What if I can’t come?

There are some flexible sessions included in all Pony Share Memberships, to be used at times that suit you.
