I found one of the best deterrents to ticks to be Guinneas! Wow, do they chase down and get rid of them...
Other than that, I've done a variety of things over the years and I'm very glad that I don't have any "true" minis under 36" in height. The worst tick infestation that I dealt with, in 2012, was pretty awful and I regularly found them attached to the mares' vulva/genital areas & udder, too (& wonder about the stallions/geldings - but never saw any there). The same treatment, from year to year, didn't always work - really depended on the ticks themselves as well as the ponies.
