The Big Book of Small Equines: A Celebration of Miniature Horses and Shetland Ponies begins with a brief history of the breeds in the United States and includes a fascinating look at influential horses and breeders and the continuing growth of the breeds’ popularity. Although Minis and Shetland Ponies are smallest of all the equines, the enthusiasm of their owners and fans is huge—with good reason. Minis and Shetlands are as versatile as they are cuddly, found in backyards and indoors where they make perfect pets, and in the show arena where they are as fiercely competitive as equines ten times their size.  Owners and other devotees of these equines share delightful stories about their bonds with them through “member of the family” anecdotes. How the small equines excel in the show ring focuses on their riding, driving, and breed classes. “Heartwarming” is the word for the work they do as companion and therapy partners of physically and emotionally challenged humans (case in point: Minis have made trainable and dependably guiding eyes for the blind).  Profusely illustrated, The Big Book of Small Equines will captivate every horse lover in the same way that that Minis and Shetlands have captivated the horse world. Co-authored by Johnny Robb and Jan Westmark.
