Miniature Horses are found all over the world and come in various colors and coat patterns.
The designation of miniature horse is determined by the height of the animal.
There are two registries for Miniature Horses, AMHA (American Miniature Horse Association) and the AMHR (American Miniature Horse Registry).
They can not exceed 34" at the last hair of the mane in AMHA.
There are two divisions in AMHR - "A" 34" and under and "B" 34"-38".
Due to their size and stature, miniatures are completely separated from the rest of the horse show world.
Miniature horses are friendly and interact well with people, particularly children.
For this reason they are often kept as family pets.
