Enjoy the beautiful poppy meadows with the Shetland ponies

Wow, the beautiful poppy meadows are in full bloom at Shetland Pony Club now that it has rained. The meadows have sprung to life with thousands of amazing poppies and other wildflowers for the Shetland ponies to enjoy.

Beautiful poppy meadows

The Shetland ponies love to explore the amazing poppy fields with their friends. They don’t like to eat the poppies but adore the milk thistles that are also growing amongst them, in the wildflower meadow.

How many Shetland ponies can you see?

Best friends Honeybee and Crème Brulee are joined by some more adorable Shetland ponies in the beautiful poppy meadows. Can you see which ponies are exploring the stunning fields with them?

Strictly Limited Shetland Pony Visiting – Sunday 28 June 2020

We are delighted to announce that on Sunday afternoon 28 June 2020 we will have limited ponies available for Shetland Pony Visiting and photography.  Our pony share members have really enjoyed connecting with their ponies after lockdown. So, we would like to give more children the chance to come and enjoy some pony company too. You will NOT be able to ride but can still have a lovely time with your adorable Shetland pony.

Bookings for Shetland Pony Visiting are now open for Sunday 28 June and are strictly by appointment only.

Please understand your child will NOT BE RIDING due to 2m social distancing rules, just pony visiting, grooming, and a chance to walk a Shetland pony with supervision through the meadows. There will be a chance to take photos of your child and pony too.

There will be very strict and unbreakable rules, for everyone’s safety. You may bring only ONE adult and ONE child per booking.  No exceptions. Parents must be able to help their child, by leading a pony under our supervision. You can download our rules for attending these sessions on our website here
