Shetland pony is a short, stout, very intelligent breed with a really thick coat that comes from the Shetland Isles off the coast of Scotland. Because of the harsh conditions of the isles they are very strong with a thick coat and a robust body too. According to some people, the Shetland Pony is the strongest of all breeds of horses. Reportedly they are able to pull its entire body weight, while most breeds can only manage around half. They are also very gentle and loyal, which really makes them ideal children’s pet.
Today, usually children ride these horses. They can also take them to the horse shows in harness driving classes sa well as for the pleasure driving outside the show rings. Small children ride them at the horse shows, in riding schools and for pleasure too. Sometimes you can actually see them in commercial settings such as fairs or maybe carnivals to provide some short rides for visitors. You can also find them in petting zoos and sometimes in therapeutic horseback riding purposes. In the UK, Shetlands are also a part at the Shetland Pony Grand National, galloping around a racecourse with the young jockeys.
These horses are strong and gentle at the same time. They are elegant and goofy too. They really are wonderful!
