The Shetland Pony Grand National

The excitement of a day at the races condensed into Shetland Pony size!

The ponies and their young jockeys come from all over the UK to battle it out in 2 to 3 heats of up to 9 ponies. All in with a chance to qualify at Olympia, the London International Horse Show.

More than 50 ponies start the season all hoping to be the lucky 12 who make It to Olympia. The ponies are paraded, the jockeys mount and are led down to the start before they descend over the 2 ½ laps incorporating 12 ‘mini’ steeplechase fences.

Cheer on your favourite pony and jockey!
