    Some people also have more aptitude than others. I am self taught and trained my own to drive. 1 about 35 years ago and now one recently and have taken some lessons over the last 2 years. It's hard to find a good instructor though. I took 2 lessons from a very experienced driver and I would say my knowledge far surpassed hers so I didn't take anymore.

    I am very diligent at research (lots of reading and asking questions) and safety more so than many experienced drivers and I trust my ability and my horse.

    Now if I didn't trust my horse I wouldn't be driving her either nor putting myself, my horse or anyone else in danger.

    So I try not to discount a novice with out having more info.

    So, adding photos from mobile, doesn't work. Here's the filly:


    I'm currently taking lessons, and if I did decide to go forward with training her to drive, I would DEFINITLEY be getting better professional help. A real trainer and someone who can work with me as well as break her to it. She seems like she has the perfect tempermant for it. I know how to do the harness and all, so, if I decide to drive her, I'd just get her used to the harness in the next year or two and then I'd seek professional help. I mean i'd put it on her and let her get used to the feel, as well as ground drive her with the surcingle. What do you think? I think in a year or two, she should be fine to start training and I would be seeking professional help and all that. Her tempermant seems absolutely perfect for this though. I'm purchasing her as long as the owner will sell, for more info on her, see the link at the bottom of the post. She's very well mannered and calm for a two year old.


    Help me help Tiger Lily?!

    I am the first to admit driving is NOT my skill. I'm better at training western pleasure/trail. So, this would be a big thing. But, do you guys think, with the proper training and a few years down the line, she could be used to pull a small cart?
