At some of the big race meets and the Melbourne Royal Show, there are shetland races. Among Marie's shetland numbers, she has a few "Racing Shetlands." The jockeys are of all different ages and if not riding, they lead the others in the parade. It's very exciting for the leads, as they all get to enjoy hands-on experience and great fun is had by all.
