Angie is a Shetland pony born in 1994.

She was used in pony games, a series of play based exercises suitable even for very young children and an ideal introduction to horseback riding. Unfortunately, Angie suffered an injury which was never treated and subsequently resulted in sever shoulder problems because of this she was destined for the slaughterhouse.

Fortunately in 2009 she was rescued and brought to the Shelter. Here she underwent a year of therapy with Andrea Bertoli, DMV (osteopath) and daily massages.

Angie’s condition has greatly improved and although she will never be 100% she’s now living happily with her friends Devil, Baby and Giselle and loves being groomed and cuddled.
