    Ok, I have goats, and you can actually train them to drive! I have a harness set that im saving up for ($194 w/o shipping/tax) and im really liking it!!

    BUT it comes with a bit ?, im unsure of what to do! I have a yearling wether (gelding), and buy the time I finish up saving, ill have another yearling wether. I also have a 5/6 mo. Buck (stallion) that will be in training to drive.

    I havent found a cart, but im on the lookout for a mini cart, and will happily buy one for the right price.

    Anyways, im looking for tips on the bit, and what to do if they have a freak attack?! I know to calm them down and star slow, but my guys love me and are pretty easy going. Anything I should lookout for?

    I truthfully know my guys and theyre great and I just posted here because its basically training a horse to drive. Theyre both prey animals, both have hooves, etc etc.

    I've never driving my goats, but I think when people do, they don't use a bit, they use a "halter" instead?

    Yes they do. But this harness I've found come with a bit.. I don't think it can be converted.

    Sure it can. Loose the bridle, buy a halter ;)

    I have mini's that I drive besides from riding horses, I have heard and seen goats being driven, but they don't pull alot...and they always drive with a halter on them, goats wont tolerate a bit (but if your brave you can try). You can disconnect the reins from the bridle and place them on the halter, that will work the same.
