Ashley Roberts of Strictly Come Dancing fame chooses adorable Shetland Pony, Creme Brulee, as the Face of Amazon Pets 2018 winner beating thousands of entries from across the UK

Thousands of pets of all shapes and sizes competed to become the Face of Amazon Pets in a nationwide search to find the most adorable pet of 2018. On the judging panel were a number of influential media stars of the pet world including Ashley Roberts, owner of Cooper the Maltese dog.

Adorable local Shetland Pony, Creme Brulee, who lives at Shetland Pony Club, Cobham, Surrey, achieved unbridled success in becoming the Face of Amazon Pets 2018.

Crème Brulee, one of the pets with them most likes and shares on social media, joined a Face of Amazon Pets short list of much-loved pets in a range of categories (dogs, cats, fish, birds, small animals, horses and reptiles).

The Face of Amazon Pets judging panel comprised of some of the UK’s most influential social media stars of the pet world, including:

  • Current star of Strictly Come Dancing, Ashley Roberts, and owner of Cooper, her Maltese dog, who this weekend wowed crowds with her Dirty Dancing lift on Strictly Come Dancing
  • Pet photographer and owner of Instagram star Winny the Corgi, Rachel Oates
  • Former Face of Amazon Pets winner, Effie the Bunny, represented by her owner, Annie Swift
  • Pet Supplies Director, Amazon.co.uk, James Bate.

Crème Brulee was crowned the winner of the Face of Amazon Pets 2018 and received the main prize of a £1,500 Amazon Gift Card and a photoshoot with professional pet photographer Rachel Oates, images from which will be featured on the Amazon.co.uk Pet Supplies Store this autumn. He also had a video made all about him which you can see here. This will add to the popularity Crème Brulee already enjoys through his own web page.

We are so proud of Crème Brulee, we knew he was special and destined for great things. His long blonde eye lashes and fluffy coat make him the ‘mane’ attraction at Shetland Pony Club, and he loves to dress up,” said Crème Brulee’s owner, Maddie Norris from Cobham, Surrey, who keeps Crème Brulee at nearby Shetland Pony Club. “He is going to love the ‘horse-play’ and attention from his win. We’ll buy some tasty pony treats and a rug for him from his Face of Amazon Pets winnings.

“Crème Brulee was a delight to be photographed. He was so at ease in front of the camera showing off some of his best moves and he posed like a pro,” said Rachel Oates, Face of Amazon Pets photographer and judge. “From what I have seen, Crème Brulee is far from a one trick pony and could well have a modelling career ahead of him.”

Adorable 17-year-old male Shetland pony Crème Brulee and his friends at Shetland Pony Club are available for children aged 2½ – 10 years old to ride, by appointment only. Children can come and enjoy Starter rides and Pony Mornings at his home at: The Ranch, Cobham, Surrey where their motto of “Small Ponies…Big Dreams” really has come true.
