Hello all,

I have recently moved my two horses onto my own land to cut down on livery expenses!

However now when I take one away to a competition or even for a ride around my cross country jumps (that are in the same field!!)the other goes mad and gets very stressed!

I have bee looking to get a pair of mini shetlands to keep them company and also to break to harness and have abit of fun with? Does anybody know much about them? Temperament wise etc??

Well..... I heard that shaetlands have a fantastic character!!!! but they also have the little cheeky side of them! But either way, sound perfect for what you want them for!!!!

I have a friend who owns about 12 of them! I think they're super little equines! All hers have wonderful temperaments, no nipping etc. They all get on really well too, she has them in a large field with 2 tb and a Shire!

I can't see you having any trouble with them.

Hi Elz, I spoke with my friend, she normally buys her little ones from a breeder is Leicester. They have a website They're lovely people that run the stud. That's what my friend says anyway! Lol

Once before she's bought from another stud in Berkshire (think I've spelt it right)
