Our New Shetland Pony Bilbo arrives

Our new Shetland pony, Bilbo, is arriving at the Ranch today – how exciting!  We are so looking forward to meeting him and making friends with him.


Today is the day when our new Shetland pony, Bilbo, is arriving at the Ranch – how exciting!

Bilbo has just had a short journey to get to us.  He has come from a lovely family where he has been ridden and cared for by some children who have sadly outgrown him.

New friends for Shetland pony Bilbo

Bilbo goes out into our meadows to meet his new friends.  Will they want to say hello and play?

Elgin Sunset is not interested, but what about Toffee and Snowdrop? Do they play with Bilbo and make friends with him?

Do Shetland ponies need horseshoes?

Join Rosemary in this week’s advice video as she answers your question, do Shetland ponies need horseshoes?

Our ponies don’t generally need horseshoes, this is called having a ‘barefoot pony’. It’s something that is becoming increasingly popular in the horsey world.

Why don’t our Shetland ponies need horseshoes?

  • Shetland ponies have good strong, sturdy hooves that don’t often crack
  • The children who ride are lightweight and don’t put pressure on the pony’s hooves
  • The ground that we ride on is soft and doesn’t have stones

Review of 2021 at Shetland Pony Club

Join Rosemary as she looks back and reviews the best of 2021 at Shetland Pony Club.

Review of 2021 at Shetland Pony Club.

After a long period of lockdown from November 2020 we were delighted to start riding again at The Ranch in March 2021. Despite the challenges of this year we managed to have lots of pony fun and riding. We were thrilled to be able to go ahead with our legendary Easter Egg Hunts, Summer Camps and Halloween Pumpkin Rides. Watch the video to find out more!

As you watch this year’s review video can you answer these questions:

What happened on the opening day at The Ranch?

We had a cold surprise on our opening day at The Ranch but that didn’t stop us or the ponies from riding. The ponies still had their warm, fluffy coats and were ready for any weather.

How many new ponies arrived this year?

We’ve had some new pony additions to Shetland pony Club this year, including Trooper who travelled all the way from the Shetland Isles.

What did the farmer plant to cheer everyone up?

As well as our amazing wildflower meadows, we were lucky to also have some new, bright and cheery flowers at The Ranch this year. Can you guess what flowers they were?

Thank you so much for all your support in 2021.
