Let’s find out how to prepare a Shetland pony for a photo shoot in this weeks’ video from Shetland Pony Club.
When is the best time for a pony photo shoot?
When the weather improves, the Shetland ponies have their summer coats and the wildflower meadows are in bloom, it’s the perfect time for a Shetland pony photo shoot. Getting the perfect photo takes time and care, and the ponies need to look their best in the pictures.
How to prepare a Shetland pony for a photo shoot
The secret is to shampoo the ponies to make them look gorgeous. We have special pony friendly shampoo and warm water for the ponies to enjoy their beauty spa.
Honeybee has had his legs washed, Sundance has a beautiful shampooed tail and Crème Brulee has had his mane washed. The ponies that need the most preparation are the white ponies (known as grey because of their skin colour), Snowdrop and Tintin.
What is the secret to a perfectly prepared pony?
Getting a Shetland pony to look show shiny and his very best is not as easy as you might think. Find out what happens to Batman?
Stop yawning ponies! It’s time for riding. You need to wake up because there are just a few days to go before we open The Ranch again, how exciting!
The ponies are enjoying the spring weather, and are lazing in the meadows at Shetland Pony Club. They are grazing, yawning and rolling. It’s been a lovely long relaxing break with plenty of grass and hay to eat and lots of friends to play with.
Stop yawning ponies! It’s time for riding
Dinky is yawning and Batman, Crème Brulee and Honeybee have been rolling for fun. But the Ranch will be opening soon and so the ponies need to get ready to meet the children for a summer of pony riding fun.
The team have all been trained in the new procedures and the ponies are practicing coming in again for breakfasts and grooming. We can’t wait for the children to come back for a busy summer of pony riding fun.
Stop ponies! don’t open your Christmas presents yet – you need to wait till Christmas day to open them.
Let’s join Rosemary as her Shetland pony helpers are preparing the Christmas presents and see what happens.
Which pony wants to open the presents?
Honeybee and Creme Brulee are helping Rosemary pack up the Christmas presents for all the Shetlands. Oh no! the ponies want to peek inside the Christmas presents before Christmas Day. Which pony is the most inquisitive?
Will they spoil the surprise and unwrap their Xmas gifts early?
