Shetland Pony Grand National
The Shetland Pony Grand National is a team of Shetland Ponies and jockeys that race all over the country and at the same time raising money for charity.
All the jockeys who take part are trying to gain one of the 11 places at the world famous Olympia The London International Horse Show which takes place in December just before Christmas. All the Children taking part have to be 8–14 years old and must be less than 5ft in height and all the ponies that take part have to be registered with Shetland Pony Stud Book.
The jumps and wings are miniature steeplechase fences similar to the ones on National Hunt Race course.
