"Miniature horses - so cute, so tiny, so perfectly adorable, right? Many of us have often wondered if it is all right to ride a mini horse. "
Despite the fact that they are fully functioning horses, their small size means that even the largest miniature horses should not be ridden by anyone over 70 lbs.
Since miniature horses can safely carry up to 70 pounds, some smaller children (generally under the age of 8 or 9 years old) can safely hop on.
Just as with any other horse, you must wait until a miniature horse is developmentally ready before trying to ride (or drive) him
Mini horses generally have a longer lifespan than larger horses. In fact, they can live up to 35 years, with many even living past that age.
