Fanciers of Shetlands in the United States began importing hardy little ponies from the Shetland Isles and Europe in the late 1800s. Immediately, the earliest owners and breeders embarked on a journey to improve the quality of stock by selectively breeding. In doing so, they established a truly unique American pony. Today's American Shetland and all its divisions are a testament to the vision of those pioneers who sought to create beautiful, elegant and well-made ponies capable of thrilling with their performance and animation while demonstrating the work ethic and stamina of their ancestors.
