Teaching My Pony To Drive-Help?
I'm thinking about teaching my eventing pony to drive because she's had problems with putting her hips out over fences. I don't want her to get bored while she recovers, so I'm hoping to do some western pleasure work as well as trail, and some driving. She's a great trail pony, we won our county 4H trail class, and she's very willing to learn new things, like western pleasure. But I don't even know where to begin to teach her to drive. I know it's ground driving and stuff like that, but how? And what do I use? And where do I get my hands on a not too pricey harness(and maybe even a cart)?
I know absolutely nothing about driving, and I am hoping to get some help from my trainer who has had numerous driving horses and ponies, but I'm hoping for some basic stuff to work on until Spring comes around and I can get some time with her.
