Shetland Pony Grand National

All the excitement of a day at the races condensed into Shetland pony size - an unmissable treat! The fabulous spectacle that is the Shetland Grand National returns to the Pembrokeshire Show this year.

Shetland ponies, and their jockeys who are all between 8 and 13 years old, run high speed heats and finals where the winner qualifies for the prestigious Olympia International Horse Show in London every December. The ponies and their jockeys come from as far afield as the Shetland Isles and North Devon, travelling the country in hot pursuit of a qualifier and the chance of going to London.

The Shetland Pony Grand National has all the trappings of a big race meeting: parade of ponies, jockeys in their racing colours being led to the start, and then "the Race" - 12 mini Aintree style fences for them to tackle amidst the cheers from the crowd.

The Shetland Pony Grand National has always raised money for charities and since it began in 1981 has raised nearly £400,000. This year they are supporting the Bob Champion Cancer Trust.

Come and cheer them on in the Horse Arena on Tuesday and Wednesday of the Show.
