Matching Horse Sets For Shetland Ponies

Shetland ponies may look adorable, but as anyone who has ever owned one can testify, they can be as mischievous as a Tasmanian Devil and a nightmare to find tack for! Thankfully, here at Matchy Horsey we can at least help with the tack issue.


As the name might suggest, Shetlands originally came from the Shetland Isles in Scotland.

With a maximum height of 10.2 hands, Shetlands might be small, but they are said to be the strongest of all of the horse breeds – able to pull twice their own weight, in contrast to draft horses that can only pull half their own weight. So, 1-0 to the little guy!

While Shetlands are generally good-tempered and can make fantastic first ponies for children, they are very intelligent and as a result they can be quite cheeky if owners aren’t careful.

Possibly because they look so sweet, they can also be spoiled and headstrong if not trained well.

But as the saying goes, good things come in small packages and that includes our Shetland Matchy Horsey sets, which are so cute they’re to die for!

As well as Matchy Sets made up of saddle pads, fly veils and bandages, we’ve a number of adorable saddle sets in enough colours to keep any Shetland looking like he’s just stepped off the boat from the Isle of Style! It has never been easier for your little hero to make a big impression.
