Mountain West Miniature Horse & Shetland Pony Owners, Incorporated, was formed in 1991 by a small group of horse lovers interested in promoting the American Shetland Pony & American Miniature Horse. From a small beginning our membership has grown to include memberships from Utah, Idaho, Nevada, California, Texas, Wyoming, Montana, and Colorado.
Each year the club organizes several American Shetland Pony Club/American Miniature Horse Registry sanctioned shows and cosponsors shows with local County and State Fairs. These shows enable members to earn points toward both club and National awards.
Along with shows, the club sponsors many family activities. These include demonstration clinics, trail drives, dinners, and the annual Christmas Dinner & Awards Party. Members also participate in various events such as sales, stock shows, and parades.
The club is a 501 (c)(5) not-for-profit corporation run solely by volunteer help and leadership. Each year, fund raisers are carried out by the members to help with the cost of shows and other club activities.
Many local businesses also help with show sponsorships in return for advertising in the show programs, website, Enewsletter, and Facebook pages.
Mt West Miniature's has a Club Facebook Page and a Club Facebook Sales Page
