The most showy American Shetland:
Modern American Shetlands are perhaps the epitome of a show-pony. They have lean bodies--that resemble a small Hacney--and the iconic 'showy' standing pose of tacking their head high and arching their necks up-and-forward while stretching their hind legs far behind their bodies.
When moving, these ponies exhibit the high knee-action that they inherited from their Hackney ancestors. In particular, their high-stepping trot, makes them unique among American Shetlands, because the other subtypes of American Shetlands have a regular trot.
