Shetland ponies are miniature in size but not in performance. Shetland ponies are small, tough horses. At one time these animals were used in mining and farming. Today they are often found in petting zoos and riding stables. They are intelligent and very popular due to their good-naturedness.

Global Home Edit
As the strongest of all horses and ponies in terms of size, Shetland ponies can pull twice their weight. Named for the Scottish isles where they called home, Shetland ponies became a hardy breed as they survived the harsh weather and lack of food. Employed for helping out with the chores on the farm and in mines, this breed proved its strength and gained recognition. Today, Shetlands are ubiquitous in the roles that they serve. They are shown by adults and children, enjoyed at petting zoos, followed as guide horses, and seen doing tricks at fairs and carnivals. Good at what they do, these ponies are gentle, intelligent, and enjoy long lives of thirty years or more.
