  • Ideal first family pony

Tassie has been born, bred and backed in a family environment. An absolute delight around children and adults. Ready to go to a home where she can be put to work making a child very happy!

Ideally she would go to a showing or racing home but she has proved able to turn her hoof to anything and would be just as happy as a child's first pony.

Good to ride and lead, shoe, clip and groom. Happy around other horses and is the character of the yard who makes everyone smile.

She has been to various pony club rallies and has proved handy and mounted games. She is jumping small poles and has started on the shetland pony race circuit (only flat so far). She is extremely fast and would definitely make a race pony for the right child.

Looking for a loving family!

It is with a very sad heart that we offer this darling Registered Shetland for sale.

He has been the perfect companion pony to our different Competition Ponies, he travels on the lorry very happily and will happily stand on the lorry munching his haynet while other ponies are off competing! Due to a change in personal circumstances our competition pony is now on livery and Ted does not have a proper job anymore. As a result, I feel he would be better with a someone who perhaps has a horse that doesn't like to travel on its own and therefore needs a companion, or a person that has one horse and needs a companion who will also happily be left on their own while they are out with their competition pony / horse.

 Ted is used to being turned out with all sizes of pony / horse, he is not fazed by anything! We have also competed him in in-hand classes and he always does a lovely show and comes in the placings, he loves the attention. 

We have never had the need for him to be ridden but my daughter climbs all over him when he is out in the field and he just carries on eating! He comes with a little set of rugs, as he has been rather spoilt with us and until recently was being stabled every night to keep the competition pony company!

We love Ted so much that we would want to have a reference for his new home. He is great to have his little hooves trimmed, bath etc. and is up to date on his vaccinations.

Breed Standard

Height - Registered stock must not exceed 40 inches (102 cm) at three years or under, or 42 inches (107 cm) at four years or over. Ponies are measured from the withers to the ground by measuring stick and on a level stance, preferably concrete should be used

Colour  - Shetland Ponies may be any colour known in horses except spotted

Coat  - The coat changes according to the seasons of the year; a double coat in winter with guard hairs which shed rain and keep the pony’s skin completely dry in the worst weather. By contrast, the summer coat is short and should carry a beautiful silky sheen. At all times the mane and tail hair should be long straight and profuse and the feathering of the fetlocks straight and silky

Head  - The head should be small, carried well and in proportion. Ears should be small and erect, wide set but pointing well forward. Forehead should be broad wtih bold, dark, intelligent eyes. Blue eyes are not acceptable. Muzzle must be broad with nostrils wide open. Teeth and jaw must be correct

Hind Legs -  The thighs should be strong and muscular with well shaped, strong hocks, neither hooky nor too straight. When viewed from behind, the hindlegs should not be set too widely apart, nor should the hocks be turned in

Fore Legs - Should be well placed with sufficient good, flat bone. Strong forearm. Short, balanced cannon bone. Springy pasterns

Feet - Tough, round and well shaped - not short, narrow, contracted or thin

Action - Straight, free action using every joint and tracking-up well

General  - A most salient and essential feature of the Shetland Pony is its general air of vitality (presence), stamina and robustness
