Welcome to Frost Hill Farm Miniatures - Please join us for a virtual farm tour!

Thanks for stopping by. I'm Karen Rudolph, and these little horses are my passion. My love for horses goes WAY back. According to my parents, my first word was "horse" and I was riding my toy bouncing horse before I could walk.

There were no dolls for me growing up. Breyer models & horse posters filled my bedroom and my only wish was a horse of my very own.  In 1978 (when I was 13) that wish came true. Bit O' Honey was a Heinz 57 kind of horse. About 14 hands tall with a head as big as a Draft Horse and crazy blue eyes. I spent more hours on her back than in my bed. Every morning in the summer I'd hop on (bareback of course) and ride until the sun went down.

I entered my first horse show with her - and won my first ribbon. After a few years, Dad realized I was serious about this "horse thing" and we began the search for a horse I could show and be competitive with. After a few "failures" we found Killowatch (AKA Shadow) a 4 year old Appendix Registered Quarter Horse, who may possible be the greatest horse that ever lived. For 8 years he was my best friend & soul mate.

We showed at the local shows, moving up to the AHSA Hunter circuit and finally found our niche at the AQHA (American Quarter Horse Association) shows. Sadly, I lost Shadow in a pasture accident when he was 12. During this time, our horse collection grew, with my brother & sister wetting their feet in the equine world.

I got married and soon after,  our family grew by one child, every year for 4 years.  Many horses came and went - a few stayed longer than others. Meanwhile, my children grew and two of them developed a real passion for horses. So the cycle continued and I went from the horse show competitor to the horse show mom. My Dad (now referred to as "Grampy") loved the horse shows and he faithfully brought the girls & their horses to every horse show within a day's drive. For 10 years, that was our life. Under the guidance of Gretchen Mathes & Eugene Spagnola, we enjoyed showing all over the East Coast, with wins from Florida to the Quarter Horse Congress.

You are probably wondering how the minis fit into all this..... Well, through all the years of showing the Quarter Horses, we always had one "tiny" horse at the farm. Nothing fancy, but I always loved the little ones. One of my daughters actually brought me into the world of quality AMHA/AMHR Miniature Horses. She convinced me that she REALLY wanted to show the minis and with just a tiny bit of persuading, I caved, and Investment Farms Mercedes came to our farm in 2002.

Frost Hill Farm was born. While my daughter quickly moved on to other things (but still continued to show the big horses) - I was hooked. After Sadie, came Alvadars Justablaze and then another, then another. It took me a few years to actually get in the show ring with the minis, but in 2006 I ventured into the world of showing and have enjoyed every minute.

In 2007, I purchased a true "miniature" horse trailer from Limestone Miniatures (then located in Kentucky). Not wanted to bring the trailer back to New Hampshire empty, Janet gladly obliged by sending LM Idols Valentino Hawk home with us. WHAT A HORSE! After watching him grow that fall I just had a feeling he was a bit too nice for me to show alone.

That's where Lee Crutchfield & Kirby Jones came into the picture. Valentino had 3 successful years showing, with many AMHA World & AMHR National Championships, Regional Championships, Supremes and Champion of Champions. (thanks, Lee & Kirby!)

My herd has slowly grown, and my children have done the same. We said goodbye to our 30 year old Quarter Horse, Bandit in the spring of 2011. Also in 2011 Frost Hill Farm welcomed one new foal to the world - Frost Hill Silent Sephora. "Susie" was assisted into this world by the expert hands of Heather & Shannon Troglauer at Mulligans' Run Farm in SC and is now finished the show life with Aloha Training Center (NC) (retired as a Res World & National Champion!) and getting prepped to be a broodmare - she will be bred in 2014.

We have had a show year of a lifetime n 2011! -I showed AOTE with three horses. Last fall, we came home with 2 World Champion titles and two Reserve World Champion titles (those 2 were actually TIED for World Champion!) and High Point AOTE Halter at the AMHA World Show - as well as HIGH POINT GELDING (Cuervo Straight) Figuring that we would NEVER have such an amazing show, 2013 came along and brought us TWO World Champion titles, a Res World Champion title, Res National Champion title and numerous World Top Tens.

2013 was another incredible WORLD Show - bringing home 2x World Champion titles one Res World Champion title, THREE Top 3 titles and numerous Top Tens. I am thankful to Aloha Training Center, Sheryl Peterson, Merry Black and my cheering squad leader, Sandy Revard ;o)

2015 was ANOTHER incredible year - our home-bred "Frost Hill Silent Obsidian" - aka JET was AMHA Regional GRAND CHAMPION Junior Gelding, Res Grand Champion Amateur Gelding, 5x Regional Champion, multiple AMHA Grand Champion and 2x AMHA WORLD CHAMPION. Our driving gelding, Dayspring Star Of The Morning (aka Nate) also won World Champion under the expert guidance of Clinton Jury.

In 2014/2015 we finally completed my "dream barn" to accommodate all the horses I "just can't live without". (see our BARN PROJECT page!) - well, not quite "complete but the horses are finally HOME in my backyard ;o)


2016 was another amazing year - We added to our trophy cabinet with a World Champion & Res World Champion (Bar B Aloha Silent Seduction aka Derby - shown above at left) ) as well as a Regional Champion (Ericas Admirals Girl Crush aka Sophie) in a HUGE class of 26 horses!

I know it's a cliche' but it is so true about minis being like potato chips. You really can't stop at just one. Each and every one is special and I love them for many different reasons.

Thanks for stopping by! If you'd like to have more than just a "virtual visit" - just drop me an email.

I love to show off my little horses. They are all registered AMHA/AMHR - and every one comes from champion lines.

I'm a HUGE Silent Partner & First Knights Billy Idol fan, as well as L&D Scout & Champion Farms Nighthawk so you will find a lot of those bloodlines at the farm. NEW to our farm is a TRIPLE REGISTERED 2016 stallion by 27x AMHR National Champion D&S Peeping Tom.


Most of all, the horses here have wonderful temperaments, which make them not only winning show horses, but also best friends.



Wishing you the best in 2017 and beyond!                                                                                 Karen :o)
