Miniature Horses are smaller versions of standard-size horses that cannot exceed a height of 34 inches in height for the American Miniature Horse Club (AMHA) or 38 inches in height for the American Miniature Horse Registry (AMHR). When measuring a miniature, you take the measurement from the mane’s last hairs. Miniature horses can be easily trained to be driving horses, just check out this video:
An excellent test for a miniature horse breeder is to photograph your animal, without a size reference, such as a person, and see if you can tell whether or not it is a show quality, full-scale horse. If you cannot tell, you have accomplished your goal. Miniature foals are very tiny and range between 16 and 22 inches. Most people can’t resist picking a foal up and holding it in their arms.
Miniature horses come in every color and shade that the full-size horse can come in as well. This goes for the color of eyes and hooves as well. the hair should be lustrous and silky.
