Hey BobwhiteQuailLover, we have a shetland named Spirit. He belongs to my girls, 6 and 11. He is 14 yrs old, we got him at around 8 yrs old. The first few years we had him he was a real stinker. I could not catch him, had to sent my DH to get him ever time we needed him. Also he had to be tied or removed from the pasture everytime I fed the QHs or he would take their feed.He also was really only used for lead line because a child could not really get him to listen. Then my youngest got big enough to ride him(she was newborn when we got him) and she has turned him into a bombproof well mannered pony.
Something about these little guys and kids, they just go together. Love watching these girls and this mighty little guy!

There was a Shetland we used to take out with us when we went trail riding. The kids would ride him, but man that horse was a pill. Definitely not a kids horse in any way and I'm surprised none of those kids were ever seriously injured. He took off with one of them dragging in a stirrup once and that was the final straw for the owner. When he wanted to sell him, I was the lucky one who got to ride him around for the people wanting to buy him! My dad and I boarded our horse at the owner's barn for awhile and I was the only one small enough and not afraid of the little bugger (Although he still gave me the evil eye plenty!)

The ones you are training look very nice. I would love to get a mini or shetland and train it!
