People fall in love with miniature horses for many reasons. Some mini owners once raised full-sized horses but now have retired and moved to smaller property where they can’t keep big horses. By having minis, they can still share their love with horses, even though they don’t have a lot of room.
Other people keep minis because they want their children to be able to learn to ride safely while very young. Adults are too heavy to ride miniatures, but young children up to 60 pounds can. Minis are also good for people with health problems that can make it impossible or dangerous for them to ride. By driving a cart hitched to one or two miniature horses, these people can have fun and travel safely around the neighborhood. A trained miniature driving horse can pull two adults for ten miles with no difficulty.

Minis are also very good as visitors for retirement homes and disabled people. Their friendly nature and their great appeal provide a fun and satisfying experience.
