I rescued this pony as a foal.
He had been brought at an auction by an acquaintance who bid for him to stop him from being bought for horse meat as the other bidder was a known horse dealer.
He is listed as companion but he has had a little saddle and bridle on in the past and used for lead rein when my grandchildren were toddlers.
This was several years ago and he would require time to settle into his new surroundings and some re education before he would be able to do do this again.

 Shetland pony
 
Shetland Ponies are hardy and strong, in part because the breed developed in the harsh conditions of the Shetland Isles. In appearance, Shetlands have a small head, sometimes with a dished face, wide spaced eyes and small and alert ears. The original breed has a short, muscular neck, compact, stocky bodies, and short, strong legs and a shorter than normal cannon bone in relation to their size. A short broad back and deep girth are universal characteristics as is a springy stride. Shetlands have long thick manes and tails and a dense double winter coat to withstand harsh weather.
