After a lifetime of owning big horses, Hailstone Miniatures began in 2003. The first foundation horses were imported direct from the USA after many months of research.
In their first year of showing 2004, they enjoyed much success taking major titles up and down the country including the prestigious and much coveted Horse of the Year Show Champion with Jezebelles Famous Song. It wasn't long before they started competing at the Major European Shows. They are very proud of the results their homebred horses have achieved against such a high level of competition. Please see the results page.

Their ethos toward breeding horses has always been to selectively breed the best with the best to produce horses which are truly representative of a large horse in miniature. They admire the qualities of the Arabian, Thoroughbred and Show Hack Type, those possessing refinement and quality, an elegant look with tons of presence.

 In addition to showing and breeding Miniature Horses both Stephen and Alison are AMHA Carded Judges. Assignments have taken them to some beautiful countries including: Russia, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Ireland, Germany, Belgium and France. Judging everything from Training Shows to National Championships.

Alison is also an AMHA official Carded Measurer and is avaible for hardship assessments of AMHR horses into the AMHA studbook. She is also the AMHA UK Director and is actively involved with promoting the breed.
