Train Your Miniature Horse to be All He Can be
Turn your pint-size package into a head-turning performer!
Reviews for Mini School
Your Miniature Horse can be just as accomplished as his larger cousins, minus the saddle. Achieve suppleness, collection and obedience in your Mini through interval training and cross-training consisting of driving and in-hand work. From lateral movements to pirouettes and fun tricks, Mini School shows how your Mini can do it all.
If miniatures are your passion then this one’s for you! … possibly the first book of its kind for the increasing band of miniature horse owners. It’s filled with ideas and instructions for training and working the little ones with groundwork, long-reining, lungeing and driving – doing all the movements that the bigger ponies do but on a smaller scale.

This empowering, helpful, and wonderful read will inspire Mini owners.

I think this book fills a gap in the market. Lots of people have ‘minis’ – Shetlands, Falabellas and other miniatures just as companions for bigger horses, but as this book shows there’s lots of training to be done with these pint-size ponies in their own right. All aspects are covered, from care and nutrition to breeding, and from dressage movements to teaching tricks. All of this information is available elsewhere, but this is a comprehensive summary of everything you need to know, all in one place. I have two elderly Shetlands who are no longer ridden, but I’ll be trying some of the gentler in hand techniques from this book to keep them interested and fitter.
