How to select, care for, and enjoy (including showing) this diminutive breed.


Globe Fearon Co
Although pony-like in stature (measuring no more than thirtyeight inches at the shoulder), miniature horses nevertheless resemble small, well-proportioned horses with refined features. As pets or show horses, for driving, as well as therapy and guide animals, miniatures are ideal whether kept in limited space or on larger property. BREEDING, SHOWING, AND TRAINING MINIATURE HORSES is the perfect introduction, full of such essential information as:

*Where to look, what to expect to pay, and bringing your miniature horse home.

*Feeding, grooming, veterinary considerations, and exercise.

*Non-competition ways to enjoy Mini ownership.

*Showmanship-in-hand, conformation, jumping, and trail course classes.

*Training and driving a Mini behind a cart or sulky.

*Training a Mini as a therapy animal for child and adult care centers and for
sight-impaired individuals.

*Breeding for color, foaling problems, and registering the foal.

With stunning photographs by Bruce Curtis, BREEDING, SHOWING, AND
TRAINING MINIATURE HORSES is as delightful an introduction to this fascinating
breed as the horses themselves.
