I have been raising and registering minis for 15 yrs and have seen many good conformation and some not so good. They have their own special shows that include cart pulling and jumping. The owner runs along side of the mini with a lead rope to keep the rope from tangling on top of jump. Quite interesting. I myself have never shown just love the little fellows. They are very good pets especially for people who can't afford to feed a big one and they eat a lot less and need a lot less room.I myself am getting older and am afraid to ride anymore so I stick with my minis and let my husband ride the bigger ones.
