Northern Lights over Shetland Pony Club

The magical Northern Lights appeared this weekend at Shetland Pony Club, in Surrey.

The ponies had a busy day at The Ranch with a pony birthday party in the glorious sunshine. When they went out in the evening, they didn’t just eat as usual…

Pony play and a spectacular sunset

There was an amazing bright orange sunset and the ponies were very playful.  Could they sense something special was about to happen?

Magical Northern Lights

During the night, the vibrant pinks and purples of the Northern Lights lit up the skies of Surrey over the Ranch. What a spectacular site for the ponies.

Some of our Shetland ponies, such as Trooper and Balmoral, were born on the Shetland Isles, so they may have seen the Northern Lights before.

Take a look at the magical colours that the ponies saw in the night sky in this week’s video: Northern Lights over Shetland Pony Club

Shetland Pony Best Friends Forever


Being “Best Friends Forever” is something that many people strive for. Did you know that Shetland ponies make special lasting friendships too.

Best Friends Forever

Shetland ponies who are best friends will eat together, rest together and enjoy each other’s company. When they are apart they yearn to be together again and may call out (or whinny) to their best friend.

Shetland Pony “Besties”

At Shetland Pony Club, Crème Brulee and Honeybee have the greatest and longest lasting friendship.  They are devoted to each other and will happily spend every day in each other’s company.

Another special friendship exists between Sundance and Nottingham. When one was poorly, the other stayed with him in the stable as his companion – what a kind friend.

See the Shetland Pony “Besties” together in this week’s video: Shetland Pony Best Friends Forever

Join us this weekend to meet the Shetland pony best friends and make your own pony friend too, on our Own a Pony Experiences and Starter Rides.

Let’s ride the Shetland ponies

Let’s ride the Shetland ponies all around the farm at Shetland Pony Club with Rosemary, in this week’s video from Shetland Pony Club.

Getting the ponies ready to ride

The children are brushing the ponies and learning to put on their saddles and bridles. When we are all ready its time to mount up and start to explore.

Where are we?

The ponies and children are up on the hills on our new paths.

Oh no! they are not sure of the way back.

Don’t worry children – ponies are great at knowing the way home. Nottingham leads the children back to the Ranch for a well-earned drink of water for all.

Come and visit us and learn to ride on our Own a Pony Experiences, and Starter Rides in the beautiful Surrey countryside this spring.
