    How plausible would it be...

    I have a horse-enthusiast friend that owns two Morgans. She loves them dearly, but she was involved in a car accident a few years ago and is now suffering severe back issues. She is finally coming to realize that she will likely never be able to ride again and ought to sell her horses on to a home that will be able to ride them.

    What I wanted to know was whether it would be at all plausible for her to consider trying to train one of her horses to drive. Would driving be easier on her back? I don't really know much about driving . Is it very difficult to train a horse to drive?

    I know this is probably a long shot. But I feel so horrid that she is having to give up her equestrian hopes and dreams.

    There are a lot of back issues which people can have. I have problems with my back when standing or walking, but sitting, I am fine. I love to drive.

    If your friend can comfortably sit, I think she could enjoy driving. The bumps don't bother me at all. Riding in a car is worse for me than driving.

    Morgans make good driving horses for sure. She'd be advised to get a trainer to train one or both of them. Then she could take lessons and enjoy the thrill of driving.

    The horse itself isent the problem but be careful in your choice of cart a wrong one will cause pain if your backs not the best
