Blue Sky Minature Horse Farm

category : Education Centers
Blue Sky Minature Horse Farm Donna and Marion Schmidt have operated their working horse farm for over 10 years and enjoy visiting with groups about this special breed of horses.

Not to be confused with Shetland ponies, miniature horses are much like regular horses, except they are only 26-33" tall. This Arabian type horse is very intelligent, affectionate and fun.

The Schimdt's provide demonstrations on training, grooming, feeding and showing their horses. All of their horses are registered show horses. They have won hundreds of honors at competitions throughout the nation. Four horses have placed in the top ten on the national level.
