Get Rewarded For Time Spent With Your Mini!

Mini Hours Logo Website.jpg

The Mini Hours program is a great way to earn rewards for time spent with your Miniature horse.  The Mini Hours program will allow you to log time spent doing what you do with your mini.  Whether it be grooming, playing, therapy work, parades, or training, turn in your time spent and receive rewards from AMHA. Created for any age member, this program recognizes the personal achievements and benefits of multiple activities you do with your horse on a routine basis. Whether you participate in trail drives, train and compete in shows, walk in parades, perform therapy work, or enjoy just grooming your mini, each hour will count toward ​your lifetime achievement record and enable you to receive recognition and awards from the AMHA.


Enroll and log your hours. Awards will be mailed to you upon completion of 100, 250, 500, and each 500 hour plateau thereafter.  


Enroll and start earning prizes today!

Mini Hours Geldings.jpg

Shelley Oney and her ten hardworking minis put in 1,549 and a half hours all together to the end of the year 2020! Starting with left picture (from left to right), are five of her handsome geldings: F&S Acres Pepper Le Beau, F&S Acres Deliteful Pepper Sirprize, F&S Acres Red Hot Chili Pepper, and F&S Acres Snowy Rivers. In the right picture (from left to right), we have her five beautiful mares: F&S Acres Ziva Grand Davi, Grazing Meadows Sugar Delight, Grazing Meadows Hallelujah, F&S Acres OpenGate MissTake It All, and F&S Acres Pepper Minh Thu. The girls were a lot easier to organize than the boys!

Bella Walker and Sassy (Oak Bay Sassy Edition) put 1,000 hours in together this past year; running the round pen, playing dress up, silly faces and a few nips in the grumpy times (some from Sassy!), they got through it all and had a lot fun. Bella heads to college in two years;  We hope the dorm is big enough for the two of them.


Your love and dedication doesn't go unnoticed!
