The Miniature Horse Tack and Pony Tack Guide will help you find answers to many of your questions. We have sold Horses, supplies, tack and equipment for many years. Way before the Internet became available. Once we had the Internet at our disposal, we began selling tack on eBay.
We are always available to answer your questions about horses and tack. We started the Mini Horse & Pony Tack Guide website a number of years ago to have a place where we could address commonly asked questions.
We have tried to cover some of your basic tack questions. Questions that we are regularly asked. Buying your Mini, Pony or Horse is only your initial investment. You next expense, beside housing, is your tack and equipment.
You should know what you need and what size you need before you buy your tack. The Tack Guide will give you a better understanding of the different types, sizes and uses of saddles, bridles, harness, tack and other equipment available for your Miniature Horse or Pony or Horse.
I am always amazed at how fast these little guys grow up. Buzz is full grown now and stands under 30". We have a number of these little guys. Just like a potato chip... you can't have just one. They seem to multiply. After all, what's one more?
Miniature Horses come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes and colors. Some are so small, you should never even think about riding them.
Amazingly, these smaller sizes do well in harness pulling a small cart. Whether you want to ride, drive or just have as a companion, you will need some type of tack and equipment for your little buddy.

Miniature Horse & Pony Tack is Hard to Find !
No items matching your keywords were found.
Most Saddlery and Tack stores cater to the full size horse and what I call accessories. Accessories are leads, brushes, combs, buckets and so forth. You might find some items for the Pony and a few items for the Miniature Horse.
You will rarely see a complete assortment of tack and equipment for the Small Pony or Mini Horse in one location. When you do find some items, they are usually targeting the show horse and you may fall over from sticker shock. I know I have.
Miniature horses and small ponies grow more popular everyday. Most people purchase their Mini for pleasure and for their children. Many older adults who are no longer able to ride horses like they did when they were younger have turned to the Miniature Horse. These adults have discovered the joy of owning and driving the Mini.
Some Miniature Horse owners love to participate in shows. The classes in these specialty shows are as much fun to watch as they are to participate in. The driving classes are beautiful. The costume classes and the obstacle course classes are just plain fun to watch. You can count on being delightfully entertained.
Not everyone is attracted to the show ring. Some folks just love to keep these little guys around for fun, entertainment and companions.
