T/C Mini Family Farms was
started in 1992. We are located in Oklahoma City with easy access to major
highways, yet still have that 'out in the country' feel.
We have only 1-6 foals a year so Riot & 'Ole' foals will be very limited. Put
a little Riot or Ole' in your pasture! All of our horses are AMHA registered and
most are AMHR also.

May your birthday be filled with many mini
There have alwaysbeen breeders who have bred for the
smallest perfect horse, but theyoften felt alone in their endeavors
the lack of recognition in the show ring. Not until the
internet discussions of
horses under 30 in height and the
non-compliance with AMHA rule CL-010 E, did
those who were
breeding and promoting the 30 and under horse realize that
were not alone in their dedication.
Through a Yahoo internet group, breeders began discussing
the needs and
challenges for the 30 and under horse. The
efforts were led by Charlotte Lupton, Teresa Palmer, Margie Wood, Suzi Brannon, Kay Baxter,
and Arlene Toback.. Through thisYahoo group,
the Mission Statement was formed, the logo was chosen,
by-laws written and the first officers elected. In order to improve
communication among the breeders, a message board was
set up in March, 2003 and
a paid member group was formed
to promote the 30 and under horse. The charter members
are noted on the membership page. Membership
set at $25.00 per year per family.
The first officers were Charlotte Lupton (President), Size Brannon (Vice
President), Carol Albritton (secretary) and Margie Wood (treasurer). From a few original members,
SmallestHorse Group has continued to grow and has made it's presence known
through the website, magazine advertising,
sponsorship of AMHA World classes and
having a SHG booth
at the World show. Plans are being made to sponsor and
have a booth at the AMHR National Show.
All officers and directors of the SmallestHorse Group are
volunteers. There is no paid staff......so for the love of the
30" and under miniature horse, many people are contributing
their time and energy to promote the perfect horse in miniature.
