During lockdown the Shetland ponies did a lot of resting and eating.  Some of them have put on too much weight.  How can we tell?

Shetland Pony weigh-in

At Shetland Pony Club we have some special pony scales so that we can have a Shetland Pony weigh-in to see if the ponies are a healthy weight for their size.

Are all the ponies a healthy weight?

Honeybee, Snowdrop and Elgin Sunset are all a healthy weight for their size, but are all the ponies the right weight?  Which ponies need to eat less and do more exercise?

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
