Welcome to Our Miniature Horse Farm!

Stop in and say ‘Hello’ to the miniature horses at the Amish farm of Henry & Linda Stoltzfus, situated just outside of Strasburg. Our miniature horses are gentle, friendly, and waiting to be petted.

Miniature Horses

Come pet our miniature horsesOur barn offers 10 stalls of miniature horses waiting to greet you. Henry has crafted the stalls so that each has a large hole cut in the door. It’s quite a sight to turn the corner and see all these little heads peeking out at you! The design of the stalls offers ample opportunity to pet the horses and have your picture taken with them.

We also offer saddle rides and cart rides with our miniatures. Small children will love this opportunity to ride or ride behind one of our miniature horses. While in the barn, you can also view Henry and Linda’s team of driving horses, as well as their buggy.

This is a unique experience for every member of your family. There is no admission fee to tour the horse barn. There is a small charge for the rides.

We are open Monday through Saturday, 9 am – 5 pm (closed Sundays).

Miniature Horse Workshop

Lil Country Store - one of our miniature horsesFor a hands-on experience, where you truly interact with our horses, we offer one hour scheduled sessions on our family farm. It’s fun for the entire family and includes:

  • Grooming – Did you know braiding a mane is fun?
  • Feeding – Horses always appreciate meal times!
  • Cart rides – Their gentle manners will soothe any anxious moments you might have.
  • Saddle rides – Weight restrictions apply.

Learn new things with our program. You’ll get the chance to help harness and hitch the horse to the cart. Come join us for a new experience! Workshop hours are from 12:00 to 1:00 and 4:00 to 5:00 Monday through Saturday by appointment only.
