The Top-20 Registries for Miniature Horses
(listed in alphabetical order)

There is no single "official" registry for Miniature horses, and each registry has their own rules for
conformation and size. Worldwide, there are many standards for perfection for miniature horses
and ponies, some liking the ponies to appear like full-sized horses while other like the stout
look of their Shetland pony ancestors.
