Zennor Swift, 7 year old standard Shetland gelding. Southley Snowman x Zennor Goldcrest.

Swift is an exceptional, true to type Shetland who has taken my daughter from M&M Lead Rein through to First Ridden with great success.

Bought directly from his breeder as a 2 year old, he competed successfully in hand before beginning his ridden career. Many wins and championships both in hand and under saddle at county level. Swift has been carefully and quietly introduced to many different jobs. He is an exceptional lead rein pony and safe to be let off in open spaces. He hacks quietly beside my cob (he often gives a lead to green ponies) and has taught my daughter to canter off the lead. He is also happy to pop a pole when asked but this isn’t something that we have concentrated on. 

Good to work with from the ground - my daughter can safely catch, groom and do all work with him. He turns out with mares/geldings and our section B stallion. My 9 year old daughter can load him on to both trailer and lorry, good to clip, with farrier and up to date with vaccinations.

Extremely sad sale but my daughter has moved on to bigger ponies and he has far too much potential to stand in the field. He can be turned away for weeks at a time and still not need lunged before child gets on. 

Half brother to regular HOYs qualified pony. Sire has been ‘Kellythorpe Sire is the Year’ on multiple occasions. Swift has taken part in pony club rallies, dressage clinics, was winner of NISPG gelding and lead rein schemes 2018 and has many wins and championships at County level in both M&M lead rein and first ridden.

Dougie is a top class hoys potential lead rein

Shown only a handful of times with some amazing results

Dougie was gelded and broken for the lead rein at the start of 2019

With more schooling I’m sure he will come off the lead

He is fantastic on the lead and is a real show man that moves for fun, a definite HOYS/RIHS potential

He has fabulous conformation and tons of bone

He is only for sale as my daughter seems to have grown some serious legs over the last 6 months and he will no longer have a job

Serious enquires only as a very sad sale

Flower is a beautiful pony inside and out. She is a proven brood mare and would excel at in hand showing with her correct conformation, straight movement and clean limbs.

She was sold to us as ridden however she is just too green and nervous for my 2 year old daughter.

Has been lunged and long reined in full tack and I'm sure would come right under saddle with time and a capable jockey.

I cant talk highly enough of this mares temperament.

She is sweet, quiet and easy to handle but a little nervous around new people and small children. Never kicked or bitten. 100% to trim, load, bath. Lives in or out.

100% sound never needed a vet and no lami.

Will only go to a suitable, kind home.

Based Wirral, Cheshire.

  • Would be a fantastic lead rein pony and is going well off the lead rein

Belle has been with us for a few years but due to having other ponies she was only professionally backed this year. Belle is the most laid back and chilled pony on the ground, she has been handled by all ages and nothing fazes her. She has done pony club rallies inc with my 6 year old novice son, racing inc at Devon County she just lacks a bit of speed and been to a couple of shows including the shetland performance show recently, taking everything in her stride.. We have also done a couple of hunter trails with her, she is a fab jumper.

Belle would be a fantastic lead rein pony and is going well off the lead rein but due to our lack of time she does need more work and therefore she would need an experienced child to go off the lead rein, I think she would also make a great hunting pony for someone. She is also happy to be left on her own at the yard and good in traffic.

She is good to catch/clip/with farrier etc. and is up to date with teeth, back and vaccinations etc.

Please message me for pictures/Videos or info this is a sad sale and we will be devastated to see her go so no timewasters please.

Tonto is a stunning bay roan and white homebred Shetland x Gypsy Cob also known as a mini cob, 5 year old colt. He stands approx 11hh and is a very chunky boy! He was not planned-I breed pure Shetlands but a cob stallion jumped into my field of Shetland mares and here is the result!

Unbroken and totally unspoilt, I bred him so know everything about him. He is a very quiet, friendly pony who loves to be fussed and have cuddles. Picks up all his feet. Loves a good groom. Unbroken as no rider small enough, he would be easy to break. He’s had an easy life so far living in 10 acres all his life but he is too good to waste sitting in a field. Very quiet and easy to do bearing in mind he’s a colt, never bitten or kicked. Definitely has the laid back Gypsy cob nature.

Very evenly marked and moves very straight / well.

Would make a wonderful ride / drive / pony club pony for the future.

Very sad genuine sale due to impending sale of rented grazing land.

Good home a must for this special boy.

Priced very sensibly to reflect that whoever buys him will probably choose to geld him, hence give away price.

Never had any health issues. Wormed to date.

Genuine enquires only please

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
