Shetland Pony Share Membership is the ideal way to enjoy all the fun of owning a pony, without the worries. It’s a great way to start, so let’s find out all about both options.

What is involved in owning your own pony?

First, you need to find a suitable pony for your child. This can be tricky, and you need to be experienced with horses to choose the right pony. Making the wrong choice can be an expensive mistake.

How to look after your pony

You will need to find a place for him to live, where he can be happy. Then, there’s lots to do to care for him for example regular visits from the farrier. He will also need to be seen by the vet and horse dentist and you need to keep his weight in check. He must be looked after every day of the year, come rain or shine, Christmas or holidays, so it’s a big commitment.

Shetland Pony Share Membership makes dreams come true

A great way to start out with ponies is to become a Shetland Pony Share Member, so you can have all the fun, without the daily responsibilities and worries.

There are two types of Pony Share Membership to enjoy from March – November:

  • Pony Membership – a pony of your own each week, 2 hours, from age 4+
  • Mini Membership – a pony of your own each week, 45 minutes, from age 4+* (*Covid age restriction)

The video explains how Shetland Pony Share Membership works, so do take a moment to watch it.

How can I become a Pony Share Member?

Membership is very popular, so we have a waiting list of children hoping to ride each week with us in 2022. There is still just time to join the waiting list here.

The waiting list closes on Monday 29 November 2021, and then it’s time to choose the ponies for the children on our waiting list for next year.

A pony for Christmas!

Each new pony share member receives a special pony pack in time to give them “a pony for Christmas”, with riding from March – November 2022.
