Mini Shetland Pony - horses for sale

Miniature Shetlands are some of the smallest ponies in the world. That said, people who buy a Miniature Shetland Pony know that when it comes to presence, they can easily compete with the largest horses. They have big characters with plenty of charm. They are also robust, hardy ponies, having inherited the toughness of their ancestors from the Shetland Islands off the north coast of Scotland. Nowadays, they are loved around the globe, with plenty of breeders worldwide ready to sell a Miniature Shetland Pony to a family home where they’ll have lots of fun.

Use and characteristics of a Miniature Shetland

All Shetland Ponies are small, of course, but Miniature Shetlands are living proof that less can be more! More characterful, more appealing and more self-assured; that’s undoubtedly how they see themselves. The breed standards mean that in order to register and sell a Miniature Shetland Pony, its height must be 34 inches or under (8 hands 2 inches/86 cm). Like the larger versions of their breed, purchasers can buy a Miniature Shetland Pony with any coat colour other than spotted. The ponies have the thick double coats that keep them toasty warm in winter and which they shed for a sleeker and shinier version in summer.

Origin and history of breeding a Mini Shetland Pony

Small ponies have existed on the islands of Shetland and Orkney for thousands of years. Bones of these little equines reveal that they have been there since the Bronze Age, and there were probably later introductions during the period when the islands had Norse rulers. Traditionally the ponies were used for all sorts of activities from carrying peat and other pack pony work, to ploughing small areas of land. Comparatively speaking, these ponies have the greatest strength for size of any equines. In the nineteenth century, as well as fulfilling their traditional work on the islands, the ponies were increasingly used as pit ponies in the coal mines of Britain, particularly in northeast England. Acts of Parliament banned women and children from working underground in coal mines, and the ponies were small enough to fit into the low roofed areas where the women and children had previously worked. Lord Londonderry, a major landowner and mine owner in northeast England, had his own Shetland Pony studs on the Shetland Islands and he bred a type that was particularly suited to underground working.

Two sisters, the Ladies Estella and Dorothea Hope, were involved in the creation of miniature Shetlands. Born into a wealthy Scottish landowning family, they went to live in Sussex where they set up a world-famous stud in the late nineteenth century. The Ladies Hope bred both standard size and Miniature Shetlands, and it was not long before interested buyers were shipping ponies to other countries from the Hope sisters’ South Park Stud.

Since they are smaller versions of the Shetland breed, the standards for Miniature Shetlands are the same as those for Shetlands, just a smaller version. This means they are tough animals with strong legs and excellent feet. They are curious and friendly around humans and willing to take part in lots of activities. Both Miniature Shetlands and Shetlands have contributed to the creation of several other breeds, including Falabellas and Lewitzer ponies.

Suitability of Miniature Shetlands as companions and pets

While some Miniature Shetland Ponies are large enough and strong enough to be ridden by small children, many of them are involved in other activities. They make first-rate driving ponies whether singly, in pairs, or teams. They take part in exciting scurry classes, which are fast and challenging driving events around various obstacles. In-hand Miniature Shetland classes are always very well supported. Many Miniature Shetlands are used for historical engagement at museums and other venues. Some are media stars, appearing in films, on TV and in pantomimes and musicals. They make great companion ponies for larger ponies who would otherwise be on their own. Increasingly, they are used as service animals for disabled or visually impaired people. Their intelligence means they are very suitable for this work. Above all, they enjoy being part of the family.
