How to have a well-behaved Shetland Pony

Join Rosemary in this week’s video to learn how to have a well-behaved Shetland Pony.

People are often amazed how well-behaved our ponies are. It’s important that we have suitable ponies for children so they can have a safe and enjoyable time. Here are Rosemary’s top tips on how to have a well-behaved pony:

  • Do not overfeed
  • Regular exercise
  • Suitable companions in their field, so they feel safe and happy in the herd
  • Lots of rest and sleep between work
  • Kindness, gentleness, and patience, to take the time to teach him properly what you want him to do
  • If your pony is not behaving well, he may be uncomfortable and may need to see the Vet or Equine dentist
