Opinions on what?

The link just takes me to a cover page that wants me to register to a Shetland Pony forum.

Sorry just figured out you can't get on rant coner without being a member

Ok so the rant is weather you think that you should clip a british shetland pony to show them in a miniture horse class if they do better in that class.

(It is againest stud book rules to clip if they aren't being worked are for a medical reason. And this is in britian)

I know little about this but am going to say if it's against the don't do it, plain and simple, but maybe I'm missing something?

I know squat about Shetlands except that they're small, hairy, cute, and are cunningly evil.

However, one thing I do know is that they're not minis; they're ponies. So I imagine body clipping them and trying to pass them off as minis at a show would be a big no-no.

If it's against the rules, then it's against the rules. If you want minis, buy 'em. If you want Shetlands, don't try to turn them into something they're not.

Doesn't make it any less against the rules right? So I'm with Speed Racer who said it better then I did!

Don't know if anyonewill know the answer to my question.
would it still be against the rule is the shetland is registered with the Miniture horse socity. (not that I will ever do it)

If it's registered as a miniature horse, how could it also be registered as a Shetland pony? Shetlands are a pony breed, not a horse breed.

Miniatures are not small ponies; they're supposed to be miniature horses. Ponies and horses are distinctly different in how they look, and how they're put together conformationally.

So it's either a miniature horse registered with the miniature horse registry, or it's a pony. It's one or the other; it can't be both.

Some people in Britian some how have theirs registered with both.
