Yay! Shetland Pony Club Wins an Award

Yay! Shetland Pony Club Wins an Award  – our adorable ponies and the team are so excited at this good news.

Best Children’s Equine Experience

The ponies and team at Shetland Pony Club are thrilled to have won the Best Children’s Equine Experience Award for 2023.

The UK Enterprise Awards chose us because we exemplify how a small business can make a difference to the lives of children who love Shetland ponies.  We have been recognised for creating magical first-riding experiences for over 20,000 children.

People love us

The award highlights how much our customers and global audience consistently support Shetland Pony Club through positive engagement, comments, likes and shares. Just take a look at our reviews on Google to see for yourself.

Fans all over the world

You don’t just have to be in Surrey to enjoy our equine experience, as Shetland Pony Club TV has reached over 1.4 million people in 193 countries around the world.  Fans and Shetland pony lovers tune in for our Pony Advice and the judges could see how we give back to the equine community, helping others who love Shetland ponies too.

Small Ponies…Big Dreams

Our Charitable giving was praised as people show their support for Shetland ponies by adopting Robin Hood. This in turn enables us to support more horses, by donating to The Horse Trust, our chosen horse charity.

Most of all, the UK Enterprise Awards praised Shetland Pony Club for bringing the magic of Shetland ponies to so many people. They praised our focus on authenticity and the love of ponies, which has endeared us to a loyal audience worldwide.

Well done Ponies and Team – we are so proud of you!
