Registration
Registration Numbers Up in 2013
In a year where many registries are still seeing a decline in registrations, AMHA registered over 4000 Miniature horses. Over 1800 of those registrations were foals.  The number of Hardship registered horses tripled to 176 in 2013.  The increase in Hardship registrations can be attributed to the closing of the hardship option as of 12/31/2013.  The AMHA continues to carve out our role in the world of equine sports and recreational horse ownership.  We move ahead and continue to support and serve the over 218,000 Miniature horses that are registered with the AMHA world-wide.
