Be responsible
Nobody except very small children should be allowed to ride miniature horses, and preferably not even that. They can usually pull carts because pulling heavy weights is much easier for them than carrying heavy weighs on their spines.
The average adult mini weighs somewhere around 150-250 pounds. Using the 20% of horse's body weight rule of thumb for determining how much a fit horse can safely carry, that equates to 40 pounds maximum for a 200 pound mini; the actual carrying ability is probably even less than that, since minis are not built or conditioned to be ridden like larger horses are. Do you weigh less than 40 pounds?
Miniature horses can be shown in hand, they can pull small carts, but they are not meant to be ridden nor is it safe for them. No wonder your horse does not appreciate being ridden for a long time. He is patient to put up with it at all. And if he is very young, the damage that he will likely sustain is even worse.

You shouldn't ride a horse until 2, more so a mini.

Come visit me, Thalia.

If he is less than a year old why are you riding him? Just wondering thought you had to wait till they were 2.

Come visit me, Wilma.
