Start by buying a older broke to drive pony. That actually has been driven ALOT and not been a pasture pet for the last 6 months.

OP....if you shoot me a pm, I can see if there are any equine driving instructors out your way or a draft farm that can help you out as they would know of others in your area.

It can be done, but you really need to start working with someone who has the driving experience to teach you and your adorable little pony together so you don't end up doing something wrong or causing an accident.

Hoopla, you are right about everything except one: They are not "reins", in driving, they are called "lines". Just sayin'

You might be interest in knowing I'm an advanced LHHI. 'Just sayin'

Trust me they're reins

Some folks with farm horses and mules always call them lines but that's just common venaculiar and coloquial parlance

Hoopla,

Please elaborate for those of us who lay no claim to driving anything but a car..


LHHI?

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!

That may be what they're called in the you.K., but on this side of the world (Caifornia in particular) they're called lines., & that's not just for farm horses & mules!

Thank you but I do have a very busy and productive life and we do get out quite often.

Depending on where you come from, what part of the world or country will depend on what you call your lines. It is more customary in the USA for them to be called lines, you ride with reins.
