Day46

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.
