Miniature horses are a breed based on height.
There are two main registries for miniature horses.
The AMHA has a height limit of 34 inches.
The AMHR has two registerable height groups, 34 and under and 36 to 38 inches.
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.
Yes, there is a Schleich "Falabella" horse. It is the only miniature horse at this time. You can see it in the link below.
miniature horse are consider farm animal
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.

When a horse is born, it is called a "foal." Then, when it gets a bit older, it is called a "miniature horse." this is the age where you can tell what gender it is. Then, after being a miniature horse it grows into a horse or a pony. Hope I helped!
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.
