Do you dream of owning a Shetland pony? Let’s find out how you can make your dreams of owning a pony come true, the easy way, with a Pony Share Membership at Shetland Pony Club.
Finding a suitable pony
It can be a tricky, time-consuming and expensive business trying to find a suitable Shetland pony for your child. You need to be experienced to make a good choice.
A suitable home
Once you have found your ideal pony you need to have somewhere safe to keep him, where he will be happy and healthy with his friends, all year round.
Looking after your Shetland pony
There’s lots to do to care for your pony, from regular farrier’s visits and the horse dentist, to feeding him the right amount and caring for him if he is sick. It’s also expensive to keep your own pony. So, is there an easier way to have a pony?
Pony Share Membership
