See how our Small Ponies deliver Big Dreams in our special video reviewing the ponies’ busy year at Shetland Pony Club.

New facilities and lots of training

The year began with snow, just like the Shetland Islands, so the ponies were fine. Over the winter we built a new extension to our viewing gallery, to welcome parents and riders. The ponies and team trained hard for opening in March. There were lots of new paths for all our riders and Club Members to explore.

Coronation Celebrations and Community Support

After glorious spring weather and Easter riding, it was time to celebrate the Coronation with Pony Tea Parties and the Big Help Out. We also welcomed Scouts and Community Groups. We supported Cancer Research UK with a Sunset Pony Walking evening.

Poppy Fields and Pony Experiences

June brought amazing wildflowers and our riders were able to enjoy their Own a Pony Experiences in the poppy fields of our beautiful Surrey Hills.

Summer Camp and Shetland Shopping

Vets Day, Cowboys Day, Nature Day and Gymkhana Day all featured in our Summer Camp programme.  Children improved their riding and learned pony care to gain ABRS+ awards. Our shop also opened in its Vintage Rice Trailer selling gifts from the Shetland Islands and featuring Shetland ponies.

Autumn Award

Half-term and Halloween riding and fun were followed by winning the UK Enterprise Award for the Best Children’s Equine Experience. Well done ponies, what a big year it’s been!

Looking forward to seeing you all for pony riding and learning in 2024.
