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.

Why is a miniature horse miniature?

A miniature horse actually was bred down from a standard size horse ( 15 hands and above) to smaller and smaller , until what we now know of as Miniature horse . These horses are measured in inches and to qualify as a miniature horse it must be 28" from the withers down . Anything above that measurement would be considered to be a pony .This answer is very wrong. a mini doesn't have to be 28" to qualify as one. they have to be UNDER 38" to qualify. And you mesure from the bottom of the mane.
