Welcome to the Iona Miniature Horse Farm, one of the leading breeders of refined, Arabian-type miniature horses in the United States. Top quality show horses, breeding stock and lovable pets are available for purchase.
Whether the you are an amateur, youth, family, advanced horse fancier or a professional breeder, our personal knowledge of each horse enables us to assist our customers in selecting the perfect one for them. More than twenty-three years of experience with minis, you can call on us for advice and assistance in caring for, showing and breeding your horses. We particularly enjoy helping newcomers to the world of miniature horses. That is our way of repaying the people who helped us get started and to share the joy of owning a miniature horse with others.
Over 250 foals have been bred and born here at Iona Farm. We pride ourselves in offering horses for sale that have been carefully bred. Most of the horses we sell and use in our breeding program were born on our farm! Our selective breeding carefully matches top bloodlines from champion stallions and blue ribbon mares to produce superior offspring. We strive for the ultimate in conformation, disposition and intelligence, along with small size.
Our herd includes many A.M.H.A. World Top Ten and Honor Roll winners that are the foundation of our nationally known breeding program. Our National Champion bloodlines include Boone's Little Buckeroo, Orion Light Van't Huttenest, Rowdy, Egyptian King, Gold Melody Boy, Komoko's Little King Supreme, FWF Little Blue Boy, Bond Dynamo, Shadow Oak's Top Banana and L & D Scout. At present, we are focusing on the Orion/Scout and Buckeroo lines, along with the Top Banana line.
All Iona Farm horses are registered with the American Miniature Horse Association and the American Miniature Horse Registry. Owner Gordon Harris served on the A.M.H.A. Board of Directors for six years. Iona Miniature Horse Farm is also actively involved in a regional club of the A.M.H.A., the Mid-America Miniature Horse Club. Gordon served four terms as President of the Mid-America Miniature Horse Club and six years as Treasurer. We belong to several other regional clubs as well.
