The Shetland Pony Grand National is a real event. (The video helps us believe it to be real, but we are still not entirely sold it is real.) At the Olympia Horse Show in London the ponies (which measure anywhere between 28 to 42 inches) are ridden by jockeys aged 8 to 14 and under 5 feet tall. Why do they do this? To raise money for charity and because it is hilarious. Here are the final laps from the 2016 version was won by Smokey Jo, ridden by Kinvara Garner.
