    What are you showing in? Driving, Halter? Is he classic or modern?

    Lunge him every day, keep his mane and tail nice, you could put them up if you wanted. If he needs sweats put them on. He should be body clipped a month or two before the show.

    How cute! My aunt has a shetland pony, but he is just sorta a family pet. He lives with their two big mares. I love them! They are like big dogs!!

    As a kid I remember Shetlands as being bad mannered and biting frequently, My Grandmother lived across the street from a horse Auction and every thursday night me and my cousins would climb up into the hay barn and watch the goin ons. And if their were any ponies left over we got to exercise them for the duration of their stay.
