Sizing Them Up

Miniature horses are determined by their height, which is usually less than 34–38 inches, about half the size of a regular horse.       

 

Horsing Around

While miniature horses may be the size of a small pony, they actually retain the characteristics of a horse and are considered to be horses by the registries.
