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?
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*

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) for sharing their knowledge and awesome skills with me and the boys.
