Rainbow Ridge Miniatures is located on top of the beautiful
ridges of Lava Hot Springs in the southeast corner of the state of Idaho.
We have been involved with horses and breeding for over 30-years with
the Paint and Quarter Horse breeds. In 2007 a dear friend of mine, Marsha,
was injured in a horse related accident and had to dissolve her miniature
horse business. In 2008 she gave me two of her leading foundation mares,
"Shana Lee" and "Pebbles". She knew I would cherish them and that they
would be well cared for. I decided to breed Shana Lee for a 2009 foal
to her stallion, "Bended Knee Black Obsidian". In April of
2009, we were blessed with a beautiful black filly that we nick-named "Velveteenie". We started to shop around for a AMHA Miniature Stallion to breed to and
decided to purchase our own. With the help and guidance of my friend
Marsha, we purchased "Mickey's Total Eclipse" a AMHA and AMHR
Registered black and white Pintaloosa, he stands 32-inches. We also acquired
two quality miniature broodmares. Each of our miniature horses were carefully
selected for quality, pedigree and disposition to enable us to produce
the refined type miniature that can excel in both halter and performance.
Thus the "Rainbow Ridge Miniatures" was founded in 2009. We
are looking forward to our 2010 "Pot o' Gold" foal crop out
of our "Heart o' Gold" Mares.
Some of our long time customers and friends liked our
delightful, lovable minis so much so, that we have helped them find minis
of their own. We would also like to specialize in helping newcomers to
the miniature horse breed, that can be used in a variety of ways ranging
from; harness, showing, and riding for smaller children. They are ideal
for people with disabilities, and make wonderful companions for older
people who can no longer handle large horses.
