Shetland pony missed the start and came through at the post with a fine win

Shetland pony racing may be the cutest equestrian sport in existence. It has grown from a few charity races here and there to a fully-fledged competitive sport in just a few years. It’s a pleasure to watch these adorable creatures racing.

The Shetland pony is a breed of pony native to the Shetland Islands, and it is the most powerful breed of pony. The breed is adapted to the islands’ harsh climate and scant food supply. Shetlands were used as pack horses, and in about 1850, were taken to England to work in the coal mines.

Also, Shetland ponies can be suitable for children and make good outdoor pets, as long as you remember that they are horses, look after them correctly and meet their needs. Shetland ponies are tiny and cute and can be the perfect small child’s pony. And adults can and do ride ponies too, even Shetlands. So we think you can use your own good judgment to find a large, strong Shetland and have no problems.

The Shetland Pony is one of the most famous horse breeds, especially for children. Its gentle disposition makes it a perfect choice for young children who wish to have an equine companion and who are new to being around horses. And who knows, if your kid ends up loving to ride a Shetland pony, they could ride in competitions like the one in our video.

And they are also relatively cheap to keep, eating grass when available or good hay. (Ponies are much happier if they have a companion, so it is best to have two if possible). So the total cost of keeping a mini Shetland pony for a year is approximately £140 – £200 excluding vet fees, which are rare. And you can keep the pony in your garden, but he will be much happier in a field where he has the right grass, space and can enjoy himself with his friends.
