I hooked my miniature horse up to the cart for the first time as a three and a half year old, and just let her walk around with it while I walked behind and ground drove her or lead her. After a month or two of that we did some light walk and walk-trot transitions. I didn't ask her to hold a trot for more than a few yards until she was four.
Before three, I'd do tons of ground driving and desensatizing, but no cart before then.
Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
