The magical Northern Lights appeared this weekend at Shetland Pony Club, in Surrey.

The ponies had a busy day at The Ranch with a pony birthday party in the glorious sunshine. When they went out in the evening, they didn’t just eat as usual…

Pony play and a spectacular sunset

There was an amazing bright orange sunset and the ponies were very playful.  Could they sense something special was about to happen?

Magical Northern Lights

During the night, the vibrant pinks and purples of the Northern Lights lit up the skies of Surrey over the Ranch. What a spectacular site for the ponies.

Some of our Shetland ponies, such as Trooper and Balmoral, were born on the Shetland Isles, so they may have seen the Northern Lights before.
