2011 Shetland Grand National

Shetland Pony Grand National
The Shetland Pony Grand National took place on April 24th at the Badminton Horse Trials

After all of the excitement of Mark Todd’s Badminton win, let’s not forget the other main event at Badminton: the Shetland Pony Grand National.

This event is a terrific fund raiser for charities and also looks like a heck of a good time for kids and ponies alike. It’s a lot safer than Aintree, too.

  1. Thanks for posting this! Love the Shetland GN. I see #8 rode without stirrups. Impressive. These ponies are so game, and well trained. Of course, I was rooting for the palomino all the way…
