  • We arrived after 3 p.m. on a weekday after it closed. Even though we missed the regular visiting hours, we still enjoyed our visit. My horse whispering husband got one of the little guys near the fenc...  more »
  • So nice of Quicksilver to allow public access to their minis. Nice for a quick stop to see mini-horses hanging out and eating grass. Great they allow viewings for free. I'd love some kind of interacti...  more »
  • Great place to spend some time with kids outdoors & see the mini horses. Its free. And there's a great playground down the street too.

  • Really can't say anything negative about this place. They let you stop here for free and see their tiny horses. Great place to bring the kids for about 15-20mins and let them enjoy and have fun.
  • I visited during a weekday so the place is probably better manned on the weekends when there are more visitors, but that's OK with me. Their flyer in the stable says to flag a worker down if you have questions or want to buy a postcard. It's very self guided at 11:30 on a weekday. This is NOT a major time killer. Just another pleasant roadside stop for people who like to see the lesser-seen animals. NOT a petting zoo. I enjoyed watching the miniature horses, lots of which are in green grassy areas (there was a very adorable young one when I visited), some in your typical oudoor dirt pens. Donation boxes here and there. Seems there's plenty of parking but that wasn't a problem during the week! So for what it is, and the fact that the information I found about it was spot on, 5 stars!
  • Awesome! Thanks for letting us enjoy this great blessing.
  • Adorable (and cheap!). My wife and I stopped by here since we were visiting Solvang and it was a ton of fun. The miniature horses were beautiful and well-kept. There is no admission price. Basically, its only open from 10am to 3pm, and you simply pull in and see the horses. They are all fenced in - and there isn't really a plan. Just walk around and they'll come up to the fence for attention. They ask for donations, which go towards food and they have a small gift store in one of the stables. If you have a small kid and need a diversion - I highly recommend it.
  • We always bring our visitors here to see the tiny horses!
