While horses are often described as large, powerful, and majestic animals, miniature horses grow up at a much smaller size, even smaller than a normal pony. An adult mini horse is around 34-38 inches tall. The only feature that helps distinguish miniature horses from other kinds of horses is their short legs. Otherwise, they are very similar to full-size horses.

They are too small to be ridden by humans, even by children. However, they are intelligent and friendly enough to stay as human pets or to be trained to help other domestic animals.
