The Book of Miniature Horses by Donna Campbell Smith and illustrated with photographs by awarding winning photographer Bruce Curtis, is the perfect introduction to buying, keeping, enjoying and breeding the American Miniature Horse, answering the question, “What in the world do you do with a mini?”

Barnes &
Donna Campbell Smith

Although they are ponylike in appearance, Miniature Horses are nevertheless small, well-proportioned horses with refined features. As pets or as show horses, for driving as well as for therapy and guide animals, whether kept in limited spaces or on larger property, Miniatures are a horse lover’s delight.

The Book of Miniature Horses, the perfect introduction to buying, keeping, enjoying, and breeding these delightful creatures, is full of essential information, including:
Historical background, requisite land and space, amount of care needed, where to look, and what to expect to pay when considering buying a Miniature Horse
Tips on how to care for your Miniature, including information on feeding,  grooming, veterinary considerations, and exercise
Noncompetitive ways to enjoy ownership of Minis as pets and companions
Behind-the-scenes show preparation and ribbon-winning tips for showmanship in-hand, conformation, jumping, and even trail course classes
How Miniatures are used as guide animals for sight-impaired individuals, as well as the benefits of using Miniatures as companion animals or as participants in rehabilitation programs at adult care centers, nursing homes, and group homes
The feasibility of breeding Miniatures, selecting a stallion or mare, breeding for color, foaling and first days and months, and registering the foal
