Kettlesnout Shetland Stud
website created by Philippa merrifield
Owned by the Merrifield family, based in Yorkshire and run by Andrea Merrifield, the stud breeds registered miniature shetlands. Established following Andrea’s passion which began at Whitakers Riding Stables, home of the showjumping dynasty. Becoming Michael Whitaker’s first groom, she learnt a lot from Enid Whitaker and family and has fond memories of her time there. The first shetland pony encounter was Hercules (shown right with Andrea bringing up the rear). To find out more visit our About page.
Looking forward to our 2024 foals.
We have two 2023 quality fillies for sale on our for sale page.
