Prince William

Delightful pony, Prince William is one of our Shetland ponies that is perfect for Shetland Pony Club’s Pony Share Members.

His breeding is called a ‘Midi Shetland’, which is very close to the type originally found on the Shetland Isles.

He is 97 cm or 38 inches high. Shetlands are measured in inches, not hands, but if people ask you, he is 9 hands 2 inches! They are measured from the ground to the wither (shoulder) using a measuring stick.
