Rice Trailer conversion into a Vintage Horsebox Shop

How do you carry out a Rice Trailer conversion into a Vintage Horsebox Shop?  It’s quite a challenge …but, with a vision, lots of determination, skill and many hours of hard work, the dream can become a reality.

How we made our Vintage Horsebox Shop

Our New Vintage Shetland Pony Shop is now open at The Ranch, and in this video we see how the Rice Trailer conversion transformed an old horse trailer into a den of Shetland Pony gorgeousness. Find out how we made our fun pop-up shop, selling all things “Shetland Pony” or from the Shetland Islands, in this weeks video.

Watch the video to find out more…

Come and ride with us and take home a Shetland pony toy or Shetland Isles memento from our Vintage Horsebox Shop.

Shetland Ponies Wild Swimming

See Availability Update Below

This week we have taken the Shetland Ponies Wild Swimming at the river with the children on our summer camp days.

Special summer pony camp days

You can only get to enjoy wild swimming with the ponies on some of our special summer pony camp days.  We join the first lucky children of the season to enjoy this magical pony paddling experience.

First, the ponies went into the water with their helpers to get used to the cool waters.

Then the children got on and enjoyed an amazing time, wild swimming with their ponies.  You can only get to enjoy wild swimming with the ponies on some of our special summer pony camp days.

Best day of my life!

Was it fun?  “YES – it’s been the best day of my life!” said one of our happy riders.
