This week we find out about Shetland Pony Nottingham’s Vet Visit.

Nottingham had a small cut just above his hoof, when he came in for breakfast one morning. We decided to organise a vet visit to make sure he was going to be OK.

Vet visit for Nottingham

The vet needed to put in a stitch to help the cut heal and so Nottingham had to have some medicine to make him sleepy for his treatment.  He was a very good pony and has now got a big bandage on his leg to protect the cut.

Stable rest for a Shetland Pony

Now Nottingham has to rest in the nice clean stable for a few days to let his leg heal up.  The children can visit him there and give him lots of nice hay and clean water until it is better. Get well soon Nottingham!

New minimum riding age of 4

Shetland Pony Club is proud to be one of the first riding schools in the country to be awarded the Association of British Riding Schools Certification for COVID-19 Safe Working Practices. Having risk-assessed our riding in the light of the government guidelines, we have changed the age for riding to a minimum of 4 years old, until further notice.

For children aged 2.5 – 4, we hope to be able to resume riding soon. Keep an eye on our weekly email, social media and the website here for more information.

Take care from

The Shetland Pony Club Team and all the Shetland ponies
