16. Spot a future equestrian star in the Shetland Pony Grand National
There are only 10 places up for grabs in the Shetland Pony Grand National final and they are highly sought after! Ponies and jockeys travel the length of the country throughout the year competing in county shows and equestrian events for one of the spots. The Shetland Pony Grand National Final is one of Olympia’s many highlights and it’s a race that has born many of our sport’s leading stars.
Plus, they raise money for a great cause — The Shetland Pony Grand National has always given to charity, and since it first started in 1981, has raised nearly £400,000. At the moment they are giving donations to a very worthy cause, the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
