How can you get your shetland to lose weight?

the way you place a Shetland pony on a diet will depend on many things, including, what and how much it is fed, what it's workload is like, and it's age. The easiest way to put any horse or pony on a diet is to slowly reduce it's grain ration and increase the work the horse or pony is doing. If this does not work, then you'll need to perhaps decrease or change the hay you are feeding to the animal. Always consult with a equine veterinarian or equine nutritionist about dietary changes.

Do you have to ride shetland ponies or is it enough just to lunge them and give them the run of a field daily?

A Shetland pony can be ridden, driven, lunged, or long lined. What you do to keep the pony in shape and healthy depends on your individual situation. If you are too big to ride the pony you can offer to let a light weight young rider school the pony a couple of times a week. You can also lunge the pony for a maximum of 30 minutes per session and do this every other day to two times a week. Too much lunging puts undue stress on the legs and joints. Long lining or ground driving can be a good alternative and can be done any length of time. Driving in a little pony cart is another good form of exercise and can again be done everyday. If you wish to ride, but are too big you could also 'pony' the Shetland from a larger horse. This involves leading the pony by a halter and lead rope as you ride or hack out. There are also in hand obstacle courses for horses and other forms of exercise that can be done from the ground. A Shetland pony is typically a hardy animal and will do well on sparse grazing or hay with minimal exercise, but it does need to be worked at least every other day to two times a week, even when it does have access to a field.
