Horses and ponies are very popular animals and make great companions. There's estimated to be just under a million in the UK, with many different breeds varying in size, body shape and temperament. Ponies can live for 30 years or more!
If you're looking to get a pony as a pet, then you need to ensure that you can look after it and meet all its needs. They are a big animal to look after and require plenty of space, food, grooming, exercise and cleaning out. Owning a pony can be fun and rewarding — but it's a huge responsibility and a long-term commitment.
