Shetland Pony

Shetland ponies are small, but very strong for their size. Ancient horses lived in Shetland from the Bronze Age, and later breeders crossed them with ponies imported by Norse settlers. The Shetland islanders domesticated the resulting Shetland ponies. Shetland ponies are a very strong breed, used both for riding and pack purposes, and noted for being able to pull considerable weight.
