Shetland Ponies Sleeping

 

Shhhh… the Shetland ponies are sleeping! The ponies have been very busy with Jubilee Pony Street parties and Half Term. Now it’s time for the ponies to have a well-earned rest. Watch the video to see all the Shetland Ponies sleeping.

 

Can you see Dinky having a snooze in the sun?

 

Ponies do lie down for short periods of time in the field when they feel safe. The ponies like to rest in little groups together, generally with a look out pony to see if there is any danger.

 

Can you see Gordon looking out for his friends?

 

In the wild they would need to be careful that a tiger wouldn’t come and sneak up on them. So it’s a good idea to sleep in a group with a look out.

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

Opening day at Shetland Pony Club

Join Rosemary in this week’s video, to see how the Shetlands got on at the opening day at Shetland Pony Club.

After a long winter break, the ponies are excited to see the children return! They need a big breakfast as it’s going to be a busy day with lots of riding.

We’ve had new saddles made and we’ve made some repairs to the bridles, so we are all ready when the children arrive.

Can you see what special decorations Crème Brulee and Elgin Sunset have on today?

The ponies and all the staff are happy to be out riding again.
