Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum and am looking for advice. I have a 40 inch pony we got for free. Found out she drives. The thing is she trots really fast that it's hard to slow her down. She's not mean or afraid, hardly have to steer her. I think she was Amish trained. She digs in, huffs and puffs and we go! She really is fun, just want to slow her down! Harness fits perfect, got a Liverpool bit- fits perfect, and have a 4 wheeled 2 seat wagon with old fashioned brakes( the foot pedal, metal plate with rubber pads). She pulls so hard, she already wore the pads part way down!! I pull with all my might on the reins and keep the brake on and she still pulls. I'd like to take her out in a 2 wheeled cart, but I'm afraid she'll take me across the state line! All my other driving horses are nice trotters and slow down when I want. Thanks for all your replies!!
