Pint-sized legs, flowing manes and a cheeky look in their eye — it's easy to fall for Shetlands. But for their hardcore fans, a new 400-page coffee table book, entitled 'Shetland Pony' by Troels Dalberg could be just the ticket for Christmas 2016. Get a taste of the Shetland extravaganza below...

All 2000-years worth of history about the breed are included, with contributions from John Whitaker and ‘Little Bobo’ who his children learnt to ride on, as well as an array of Thelwell cartoons.

Shetland Pony‘ by Troels Dalberg costs £48 and will launch at Olympia Horse Show (13-19 December). Visit www.shetlandponybook.com
