All the shows where I live have shetland classes for each age and gender as I live in shetlands. In the rest of britain they are mosty shoen in mountain and moorland classes, heavy horses and nativr and they can be shown in coloured claasses for coours ponies and stallion classes ect as well as the turn out classes.
The clothes vairy between the shows, for all the shoes I have shown f every one wears what the want. The mares, fillies, yearling colts and foals are all shjown on leather head collars and the stallon and 2,3 year old colts wear bridles and stallion bits.
And on another note for all the fat coments yes I am awear he is fat, but I have only had him three days so unless there is some mirricle diet I don't know about I haven't be able to control his wieght and he is on a diet now that we have him
Thats he grand-dad Wells Vijay
This is hm with is breeder who we baught him of last year winning champion at this show
Golden horse he isn't brocken to ride, I have leaned over his back which he didn't like but will leave that to when we have gotten to know each other betterso think it if lots of long walks when we get him a bridle and a bit that fit him as he has a huge head
Shetlands are lovely wouldn't give them up for the world, took me months to find a stallion as good as him his is one of the best in the breed so I have been told mutipule times. My first ponies were two unhandle yearling colts my dad got for my mums anerversery about four months after we moved on to our croft, they were the first live stock we had. I was thirtheen then and very scared of all things equine yet I was put in charge of looking after them and they soon became huge characters and were very cheaky. They are now a very cheacky yet tiny littlel strawberry roan 4 year old colt waiting to pass his stallion test with flying colours and then when the market improved be sold after he has proven himself in the show rings as we know he will (Grindins shooting star) and a very grumpy at times loves everyone but me grey gelding who was the first pony I ever broke to ride but is to small so is just sat in the field getting fat as shetlands do (Braebister Brootis). \i don't think I could thinks of a better breed to start wiht and can't to bred from my lovely new guy next year I hope my fillies love him as much as I do.
