Is it me or is it just impossible to come across full up, proper old fashioned island type ridden Shetlands these days? I fear that the new regulations prohibiting certain sized riders from ponies is just going to have a knock on effect which makes it harder and harder to find these sorts. While you are going to always coming across the "that's ridiculous, why would an adult wish to ride a small pony" brigade, people who do own these sorts of Shetlands know quite what tremendous weight carriers they are, and what smashing fun they are to ride! In Australia it seems the norm to see adult and larger riders on Shetlands at high level. They have some lovely larger ponies albeit sometimes a little light on the bone. Here in the UK, 42" old fashioned types broken to ride are like hens teeth to find! Any leads to find Shetlands of this type would be much appreciated! I simply can't find one.
