Our New Shetland Pony Bilbo arrives

Our new Shetland pony, Bilbo, is arriving at the Ranch today – how exciting!  We are so looking forward to meeting him and making friends with him.


Today is the day when our new Shetland pony, Bilbo, is arriving at the Ranch – how exciting!

Bilbo has just had a short journey to get to us.  He has come from a lovely family where he has been ridden and cared for by some children who have sadly outgrown him.

New friends for Shetland pony Bilbo

Bilbo goes out into our meadows to meet his new friends.  Will they want to say hello and play?

Elgin Sunset is not interested, but what about Toffee and Snowdrop? Do they play with Bilbo and make friends with him?

Review of 2021 at Shetland Pony Club

Join Rosemary as she looks back and reviews the best of 2021 at Shetland Pony Club.

Review of 2021 at Shetland Pony Club.

After a long period of lockdown from November 2020 we were delighted to start riding again at The Ranch in March 2021. Despite the challenges of this year we managed to have lots of pony fun and riding. We were thrilled to be able to go ahead with our legendary Easter Egg Hunts, Summer Camps and Halloween Pumpkin Rides. Watch the video to find out more!

As you watch this year’s review video can you answer these questions:

What happened on the opening day at The Ranch?

We had a cold surprise on our opening day at The Ranch but that didn’t stop us or the ponies from riding. The ponies still had their warm, fluffy coats and were ready for any weather.

How many new ponies arrived this year?

We’ve had some new pony additions to Shetland pony Club this year, including Trooper who travelled all the way from the Shetland Isles.

What did the farmer plant to cheer everyone up?

As well as our amazing wildflower meadows, we were lucky to also have some new, bright and cheery flowers at The Ranch this year. Can you guess what flowers they were?

Thank you so much for all your support in 2021.

Shetland Pony Share Membership makes dreams come true

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.

Join our Pony Share Membership waiting list for the chance of a pony share in 2022. The perfect Christmas gift to make pony dreams come true.

Pony Share Membership is incredibly popular, with members coming every weekend to ride and care for their special ponies and enjoy being outside in nature.

What is Pony Share Membership?

Pony Share Membership is an easy way to experience having a pony of your own, without having to actually buy one and care for him every day. You can come at the same time each week to learn to ride and care for your pony, build a bond with him and enjoy pony fun in the countryside. If your pony is poorly, we will care for him and provide another suitable pony for your child to ride, so you don’t need to worry.

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)
