A Modern Pleasure Shetland might be just the pony for those interested in the style and pizzazz of a Modern but who are intimidated by the care, training and shoeing required for those ponies. A Modern Pleasure Pony should be pretty, well-balanced and animated with an emphasis on excellent manners.
Modern Pleasure ponies are well suited to amateurs and youth or other non-professional handlers. Or, these ponies offer a good starting point for individuals who might want to get started with flashy but fiery Moderns.
