Who knew there was such a thing as Shetland Steeplechases? I sure didn't. This is about the cutest frickin' thing I have ever seen. Read on to learn more.

Every year in New Zealand is the Shetland Pony Grand National. This Youtube description says it all, "It's funny, it's cute and it has little fluffy ponies in it!"

Marvel as the little ponies jump the tot-size obstacles, each stubby legged Shetland and child Jockey vying for the lead, in their colorful silks. It's the most ridiculous thing you've seen all day. I'm a bit jealous to never have participated in a Shetland Pony Steeplechase.
