The public is invited to view some of the world’s smallest horses this weekend.  It’s being called the “Last Chance” show because it’s the last in a stringof three shows intended for miniature horse exhibitors to qualify for the World Championships of the American Miniature Horse Association scheduled for this fall in Fort Worth, Texas.  The free competition runs both Saturday and Sunday at the Ocala Equestrian Center.  Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Donna Green-Townsend talked with the show manager, Ruth Owen, about the event.
