About Miniature Horses
Miniature horses have to be less than 34 inches or 8 hands tall. They are often used simply as pets, for pony rides or to pull small carts. In the United States, the two main registries for miniature horses are the AMHA and the AMHR. There are also some specific breeds that only include miniature or dwarf horses including Falabellas and Shetland Ponies.
