Teaching a horse to drive

I have a 16yr old TB gelding that's learning to drive. Hell pull anything, but when it comes to steering he either tryes to follow me or not walk in a straight line. Any suggestions?

Is he broke to ride? If so, it shouldn't be too hard. Before you have him pulling things though, you really need to get him to ground drive well first. To do that, I'd advise in having someone hold his head at first and lead him while you 'directed' from the back, gradually getting to a point where he was following YOUR commands.

Please be careful though, driving is a very dangerous sport, especially with a horse that doesn't know what its doing and a driver who doesn't know how to tell it what it's doing!
