The Shetland Pony originated in the Shetland Isles of Scotland. They have heavy coats and short legs, and are naturally hardy and constitutionally strong. Although originally used for working purposes, they are now also known for riding and showing. Shetland ponies are generally gentle, good-tempered, and very intelligent by nature.
While these horses are smaller than the Classics, they are every bit as intricate and detailed as their larger counterparts. At 1:32 scale, the grown horses measure approximately 3.5"H x 4"L and are available in several different assortments.
