    WOW - I never knew how involved mini harness was. I don't think its like that over here in Australia though, but I could be wrong as I don't have a mini in harness.

    I LOOOOOOOVE driving my minis :) I haven't done a whole lot of AMHA/AMHR driving other than obstacle driving, because my two best driving horses aren't registered, but I'm hoping to with one of my stallions once he's trained.
    I do compete in pleasure driving shows, I go trail driving, driven in parades (including the Rose Bowl parade these past two years), and am part of a miniature horse driving drill team (

    But my main love is combined driving, there is NO greater thrill to me :) My mini Chili Pepper and I fly through the cones and hazards and just have a BLAST :) And with the exception of a test or two, I like the dressage as well (there is a certain prelim test that always gets me! Argh ;) )

    My husband also does combined driving and is part of the drill team as well :) Can't get him to go riding with me, but he enjoys driving the minis!

    I show my 3 yr old mini gelding at AMHR and Pinto shows in driving classes. Pinto does not designate between the different types so we show all in one class. At the AMHR shows we showed in Country Pleasure Dirivng and did very well. Rusty has the ability to also compete in Pleasure Driving with just a bit more training and experience. You cannot cross between the different divisions at the same show. I was thrilled at my last show of the year when I got a stakes win with him.
