DelSastre American Miniature Horses
I purchased and imported my first American Miniature Horses – two lovely AMHA & AMHR mares – from the USA in November 2012. Today the foundation of my small yet high quality breeding programm are a group of selected mares and a young and very promising stallion. All my horses were chosen for their correctness in every aspect and their excellent and sought-after bloodlines. Some of them have been shown up to the highest level and brought home many ribbons and trophies.
My goal is breeding an elegant and refined horse in miniature size, but with the proportions and the look of a big horse – American Miniature Horses that can hold their own and have to quality to compete successfully in today’s showring. The small dishy heads, gracefully arched necks and long legs will make them stand out when compared with a native Shetland Pony – a horse in miniature size!
Besides only breeding with horses that leave nothing to be desired in every regard, the best keeping of my little horses with daily turnout, spacious stalls – no tiny cage-like stalls and muddy paddocks – and adequate feeding is very important to me. Every horse gets regular hoofcare, deworming and dental checkups by a specialist.
American Miniature Horses are easy to keep and easy to handle even for the not very experienced person, they require much less work in regards of keeping stalls clean but they are just as much fun as a big-sized horse!
They love attention and are fast learners, they can easily pull a sulky and shine in the halter classes as well. To answer the question everyone is asking about what you can actually do with a Miniature horse: everything – except riding!
