Item Description...
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. The Book of 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, The Book of Miniature Horses is as delightful an introduction to this fascinating
breed as the horses themselves.

Good book for beginners  May 25, 2008
This book is very good for beginners in the miniature horse world. It covers a wide range of topics and provides plenty of information. I would recommend this book.
not very helpful  Mar 3, 2008
I got this book when I was first getting into minis, though Ive had big horses for a long time. There really wasnt much info in here specific to minis, aside from a short breed history, and a few pictures. It seemed to be more a general horse care book, which I already have plenty of! I would not suggest this book if your looking for info specific to minis, but its okay if your new to horses of any size and need to learn general info.
very informative  Oct 1, 2007
This miniature horse book has all the info anyone would need. It tells you everything step by step. I knew nothing before I read it and now I feel as though I might know everything about a mini.
Great book to get an overview on American Miniature Horses  Apr 29, 2006
This is a great book to purchase if you are looking at an overview of American Miniature Horses and what is involved with their care, upkeep and what one can do with these unique equines from keeping them as pets to having them as show animals.

It covers all topics with sound advice and handles even "sensitive" topics in the field with care without bias.

I have owned, bred and shown American Miniature Horses (AMHA and AMHR) since 1992 and have been involved with horses of various breeds for 37 years.
Very Disappointed  Mar 29, 2006
I bought the book hoping to gain some additional insight into the world of showing & breeding mini horses. If you have been around the show ring at all and have some showing experience - especially in hand, then this is not the book for you. Clipping a bridle path is the same regardless of size of horse. It is this type of elementary subject material discussed in the book. As for breeding, the author recommends live cover as AI for mini's is almost non-existent. I believe you could gain more knowledge from the miniature horse registry than from this book.

If you have absolutely no experience around horses - then this book may be a great first read as the principles for care are the same for minis as it is the regular size horse.
