The Big Book of Miniature Horses: Everything You Need to Know to Buy, Care for, Train, Show, Breed, and Enjoy a Miniature Horse of Your Own by Kendra Gale
Who can resist a Miniature Horse? No taller than 34 inches, these tiny versions of their full-size equine cousins are said to be “the horse for everyone.” Their diminutive size means they are less imposing, while their traits remain undeniably “horsey,” making them a wonderful option for many for whom a larger animal is not possible. "Minis" have become hugely popular because of the undeniable "cuteness factor," but also due to their versatility: Cuddly pet, show-ring competitor, pasture companion, driving partner, patient therapy horse—the Miniature Horse does it all.
But whether you dream of winning ribbons with your Mini or just hanging out together, it is vital to have a solid understanding of safe handling and proper stabling, grooming needs and feeding requirements, general care and management essentials, special health and wellness concerns, and basic training how-tos, to boot. Experienced Miniature Horse breeder Kendra Gale of Circle J Miniature Horses knows just what you need to know, and she's stepped up to provide the most complete Mini resource available.
Readers not only learn the ins and outs of making a Miniature Horse a part of their lives, they gain invaluable professional insight when it comes to buying and breeding, registering and showing, training and handling, and so much more. They may be small, but having Minis in your life is hugely rewarding, and Kendra Gale's Big Book of Miniature Horses is a terrific way to ensure they stay happy, healthy, and by your side for many years to come.
