New Shetland Ponies First Swim the River- TV EP 400

See availability update below

It’s time to take our new Shetland Ponies for their first swim at the river-let’s go!

When we bring new ponies to the river it’s often best to bring the experienced ones first so they can show the new ponies what to do.

Dreamcoat, Wills and Gordon are showing them how it’s done.

Now it’s Fudge’s turn, he’s enjoying playing in the water!

Trooper doesn’t mind the water he’s from the Shetland Islands so may have been in the sea before, but we’re not sure if he’s been in a river before.

It’s Mufasa’s turn, look he’s having a little drink from the river.

Balmoral looks like it’s all about splashing everyone! He looks like he’s having so much fun, but let’s not try to soak everyone Balmoral. Let’s have a go in some shallow water to avoid splashing everyone.

It looks like our ponies are enjoying their very first swim in the river. Well done ponies!
