Shetland ponies rule !
Not everybody may agree but when it comes to Horse Agility they certainly do.
It may be due to their small stature and there courageous nature + their willingness to please that when it comes to the horse agility obstacles, a Shetland pony just seems to say bring it on.
Over, under, through they just go for it, show a Shetland a podium and he's up there on it. However because of this seemingly willingness and natural exuberance, they possess, it can sometimes be forgotten that they are still equines, with equine needs, albeit smaller ones may be !
The focus therefore of all our Shetland Pony Agility clinics is primarily about developing your horsemanship skills, through communication, connection and understanding.
These clinics are open to all small ponies 43" and under.
