Our Shetland ponies in Storm Eunice

Join Rosemary in this week’s video, our Shetland ponies in Storm Eunice.

Last week the UK was hit by Storm Eunice, with winds up to 90mph. Thankfully all the Shetlands are safe and well, albeit a little windswept. The only damage we had was our large Ash tree that fell in the winds, this was sad as the Shetlands loved standing under it all year round.

Watch the latest video to find out what precautions Rosemary took to ensure the ponies’ safety by:

  • Moving the ponies into the Rewilding field where there are no trees to fall over
  • The Rewilding field has lots of bramble bushes that the ponies can shelter behind
  • Keeping the Shetlands outdoors not in a stable as the high winds would have made this dangerous.

Why are Shetland Ponies so small?

Join Rosemary in our latest pony advice video, which answers your frequently asked questions about our ponies.This week Rosemary answers your question – why are Shetland ponies so small?  Watch the video to find out more.

In this week’s video you’ll find out:

Why are Shetland ponies so small?

Shetland ponies originate from the Shetland Isles, where there are no trees for shelter and the weather is wet, cold, and windy. Being small means that Shetland ponies are able to adapt and survive the harsh conditions.

Are our Shetlands fully grown?

Yes, our ponies are fully grown, many people think they are babies or foals however most of our Shetlands are teenagers now. We don’t have any young foals or young stock at Shetland Pony Club.

How to measure a Shetland pony?

Shetland ponies are measured from the ground to the top of their wither. You measure them in inches. This is different from other horses or ponies who are normally measured in hands. Our smallest pony, Snowdrop, is only 32 inches high! Balmoral and Mufasa are our biggest ponies at 42 inches high.

Autumn ride with the Shetland ponies

It’s time for the perfect autumn ride with the Shetland ponies. The sky is blue, the leaves are golden and Trooper is waiting to come and be ridden, with Batman and Simba, who are in the shade of the old oak tree.

The pony share members are keen and ready to ride, so let’s head off to the woods for an autumn adventure. Everyone enjoys long autumn rides in the cooler weather – perfect conditions for riding.
