You can ride any horse without horse shoes. Just keep in mind that miniature horses are, well, miniature. So make sure that you aren't too heavy for it to handle.
There is no such thing as a miniature pony, but a miniature horse is a breed of horse that can is less than 9.5 hands (34 inches) tall. Miniature horses have 3 main uses and I've used a miniature horse for two of them. The first use (which I have not used a miniature in) is show. Many horse shows are established solely for miniature horses. The next use is jumping. While you can't ride a miniature horse and jump, you can train miniature horses to jump over jumping poles as well as other obstacles. I have a miniature horse who is trained to jump over his own height. The last, common use for a miniature horse is therapy. Many mentally disabled people enjoy spending therapeutic time with miniature horses than regular horses because they are less intimidating than larger horse breeds.
Miniature horses were never bred for riding and should not be ridden by anyone. The smallest ride-able equine is the Shetland pony.
Depends on what section of miniature you have. The miniature horse associations classify the miniatures in two different size categories, section A and section B. Section A is miniature horses up to 34 inches in height at the withers and section B is over 34 inches but not exceeding 38 inches. You really shouldn't ride a section A miniature but it would be ok to ride a section B depending on the weight of the rider.
No. Miniature horses are horses, and not dogs or cats. They require training like a regular horse, and need a job to do. They need to graze and socialise with other horses. The only difference between a miniature horse and a regular horse is that you can't ride them and they require less food. They are just as expensive to keep as a regular horse in every other respect.
The miniature breed of horse is called a "Miniature Horse" but some other very small breeds of horse/pony include "Shetland Pony" and "Fallabella"
Designating a miniature horse as a miniature horse is determined by the height of the animal. The height of miniature horses are usually less than 34-38 inches measured at the last hairs at the base of the horses mane. This differs from a standard horse which is measured to the highest point of the withers.
Wrong again. It is a horse. Go to the website for the Falabella. It says it is a miniature HORSE, not a miniature pony.
