Summer pony ride to the wildflower meadows

Join us this week as our Pony Share Members enjoy a summer pony ride to the wildflower meadows.

Getting ready for a summer pony ride

The Pony Share Members come every week to ride their special pony. Let’s join them as they pick out the hooves and tack up the ponies to get ready for riding.

Prince William is looking forward to his ride, and Dinky is happy to be on the way to find the wildflower meadows.

Over the hills and far away

The ponies head out across the Surrey Hills to find the wildflowers.  Once they come through the gate, there is a sea of flowers as high as the ponies’ eyes.

Wonderful wildflower meadows

The flowers stretch as far as the eye can see, and the ponies and their riders love to wind through the twisty paths, spotting butterflies along the route. What a lovely day!

What makes a quality Shetland Pony?

This week we find out what makes a quality Shetland Pony in an information video from Rosemary.

Find out about pony passports and if they mean that a pony has good breeding.

You will learn which characteristics to look for in a quality Shetland Pony, such as a kind eye and a friendly presence.

We will also show you more features to look out for: such as a full mane; a high set tail, a fluffy coat and small ears to protect them from the poor weather in the Shetland Islands.

There’s lots more information in the video and you can find out which of our ponies are well-bred and high quality.
