In 1920, Olney Farm started a pony breeding business. Over the years, our Shetland Ponies have been selectively bred for for their hardiness and unflappable temperament....resulting in a wonderful child's first pony.
The Shetland Pony Society of North America has just become organized in order to encourage and promote the breeding and registering of the original Shetland pony type from the British Isles -- Olney ponies are a great example of that!
It's not unusual for a Shetland Pony to live more than thirty years.
Young ponies are still available. We offer breaking and schooling to ride as well as drive for Shetlands -- and up!
