We show our minis in ADS and AMHR shows, and use them for pleasure driving, but the most fun I have with them is as therapy horses at a local driving stable. With their size and temperament, they are not intimidating to kids, and are very effective as therapeutic animals. The kids learn self confidence and get a lot of physical benefits from the driving activity. They gain in hand/eye coordination, arm and hand strength, balance, ayo name it. I get a lot of satisfaction from it all, too. Most fun I've had with horses in 40 years!

Showing, driving, jumping"w/out anybody on them..of course", Take them in parades, schools and nursing homes, and riding for little/young kids. We have a 27" Blue Roan Stallion and he has been to schools and nursing homes, and he also drives!(: He is such a good boyy!!! And our Mini Mare can do tricks...like bow, sit, ect. I've also heard they have/can be a seeing eye mini...like they have for dogs for blind people.

The mini I have doesn't do anything like show or jump. We bought him as a companion horse and he doesn't cost much to keep. Basically he is my mum's pet. This is Mylo:
