The Prefix and Farm Name “OASIS’’ was founded October 2002 after years of fascination and owning Miniature Horses.


[oh-ey-sis]  standing for dwelling place, a source of life, something serving as a refuge, relief, or pleasant change from what is usual, a place of peace and hope, which we finally found in sunny Scottsdale AZ.

DSC01414The Goal of OASIS Miniature Horses is, to breed the most arabian type Miniature Horses possible. We are extremely critical selecting our breeding stock and we refuse the new influence of American Shetland Pony bloodlines in our program.

about_marionOver the past decade, I searched to establish my high quality group of broodmares and stallions. With only about 12 breeding age mares, we are a small operation which allows us to concentrate on each horse.

We strike for beautiful dished faces with big liquid eyes, tiny ears, a good long neck, an elegant and refined body, great conformation, exceptional pedigrees, show quality and movement.

On the following pages, we will present our breeding program as well as our definition of a Miniature Horse.


Since my very early childhood, horses have escorted me through my life. I was involved with all different kind of breeds from ponies to Thoroughbreds and quarter horses and did almost anything you can do with horses, which included dressage, jumping and competing in endurance races and western disciplines.

Later on, I raised and showed purebred arabians successfully in Halter and Western competition.

How did I end up with Miniature Horses? I fell in love with them at a local pleasure driving show. Two weeks later I bought my first one and then the “potatoe chip addiction’’ began.

Miniature Horses have enriched my life and I’m very grateful what joy and fun these little horses bringing. They simply make me happy. Because of them, I found new friends all over the world.

If you don’t own one yet, don’t think twice, you will never regret it.
