: Does anyone know the origin and history behind the phrase "aim low, they're riding shetlands"? I'm very curious! Thanks

I'm guessing that you know that Shetland ponies are small - if not, that's probably all you need to know.

Other than that, I've never heard this before and it appears just to be a little joke. If there's any deep meaning I can't see it.
