Meet ThE Shets
We are a team of very clever Shetland and Miniature Ponies! There are 11 of us: Albert, Ernie, Stan, Syd, Stuart, Percy, Peggy, Rupert, Wilfred, Cyril & Cedric.
CURIOUS WHAT ELSE WE DO?
OVERLANDING with Animals! Is this even POSSIBLE? Introducing PuffinChange is scary, but change is necessary to grow so although it seems daunting for me it’s got to happen!
I have never really followed equestrians that much, as being brutally honest I don’t find the horse world hugely inspiring as mostly it doesn’t relate to me, I don’t come from a wealthy family or a family of equestrians nor do I want to ride horses at competitions.
I LOVE adventure, I love the wild moors, hills, mountains and mostly I love creating films that inspire and make people smile with my clever ponies, dogs and Louis the cat!
Introducing Puffin, “I’ve got it” I announced to Jeremy at about 4am one morning! I could tell that he just wanted to keep his eyes shut and wasn’t really ready for this ‘great idea’ before at least one or maybe even two coffees! I am going OVERLANDING I am going to zoop up our big horse trailer, sell my van (which is totally useless for pulling) along with all other now unused bits of kit at home and buy a Land Rover defender so that I can be literally like a snail! ok that doesn’t sound that cool, but it is! You see this way I can carry all I need to look after my horses in a way that I like, so I always have access to haylege, feed, water, a vet kit and so on and I can head off to all those incredible places that I have dreamed of for so many years!
Anyway we have some “local” trips in the UK to test it all out before we head to Europe in the autumn!
I hope you enjoy the video, thanks as always for all the support over the last few months.
More regular videos to come!

Mini Mayhem! They are crazy today 😂When your trying to be good but there is an incoming herd of mini hooligans trying to sabotage your work! 🤣
Claude, Seb & Charlie need a medal for putting up with them while trying to learn to drive random🏅
(I should add they don’t live together, or even know each other really, Seb, Claude, Victor & Edgar make one herd, Charlie lives with the Connies & Mulie and Albert, Ernie & the minis make the other herd!)
Meet my Mini Pony Team!Bring you all up to speed on who is who in my herd. Today meet all the little ones, they are small, super cute and very clever little ponies!
Loading up and shipping out - Em style!The best thing about being off injured was getting to come up with new creative ideas! I call this twin horse power with a triple turbo! 😂
Evenos and Barney are the drivers and Albert, Ernie and cheeky little Stan are in the back! Inky is of course sat right next to me! 🐶
In Doc Martin country - driving visit with the two black stallionsPort Quin, Port Isaac and Port Gaverne are small beautiful fishing villages on the Atlantic coast of North Cornwall, England. We took the two black Shetland Stallions - Victor and Claude for a visit.
Manes, Trains and Automobiles - (Cute & Funny Ponies Compilation)Ahh Albert & Ernie you are very cute, funny and very clever little cookies! Life is way to short not to be laughing so I thought I would share a few of my favourite clips....I hope it adds a smile to your day! Emx
Mini Pony Liberty Trail and Wild SwimThese little ones never fail to put a big smile on my face (and those we walked passed to!) This was the first time Rupert has been out off the farm so he did brilliantly along with his small friends!
Pony Crashes the Pool Party!With the covid restrictions lifting it was brilliant to finally be able to have both my nieces, Lexi and Olive over to come and play with the ponies for the day!
Hoverboarding with my Mini Pony TeamI took the little guys for a little morning of adventure! We started off with a scoot along on the hoverboard, this was the first time I have tried with the ponies, what's funny is they didn't even look surprised by the idea! We then headed off for a hike and wild swim on the moors which is always good fun....and rather cold! brrr
The Black Stallions head to the seaside for the first time!The little Shetland stallions training is going well, in todays video Mike and I take them on an adventure over the cliffs to Bude before dropping down on to the beach for a good hoon about and a play in the sea....lets just say it went swimmingly and we all ended up smiling and soggy!
* Due to the fact they are Stallions for Insurance purposes they have to wear bits*

Louis and Albert help Wild BirdsLouis ropes Albert into taking him shopping at Mole Valley, I'm not sure his intentions are totally honourable! lol
Have a great weekend and keep your eyes peeled for all the lovely wild birds!
Shetland Pony tries Horse Logging.....or Twigging!My Shetland Stallion team are going from strength to strength with their training, learning so many new things. We had our first lesson in Horse Logging, A highly skilled traditional horsemanship....It was really good fun and the boys did amazingly well for their first attempt!
Massive thanks to Mike and Ellie Paddock (and their gorgeous son Arthur)
