I want one of these!

I have to thank green_knight for making me aware that these cool conveyances exist. I gave up keeping horses some years ago now, but it has left a hole in my life with regard to equine company, not to mention removing one source of enjoyable exercise.

For some time I've had the ambition to start again, this time with a small pony (and avoiding all the traps I got myself into last time, like having no one to look after the pony while I was away on holiday or ill, for example). I would probably get a Shetland. I've known some badly behaved Shetlands, but as long as you remember that they're horses not pets and treat them accordingly, they can be great fun. And they can go quite fast enough for me. Here's a movie of the Shetland Grand National. See their little legs go!
