training a mini donkey to drive

I have 2 mini donkeys that I want to train to drive. I don't have any equipment yet. What can I do to get them started without a bridle? I have tried lunging them and it is going alright (they are not the flightiest animals).

What we did with my haffie (we trained our mini donkeys the same way) was we put the harness on.....everything but the bridle......and I led her while my mom gave her gentle pressure and the was the beginning........

Ground driving. Breaking to harness. Lunging in harness. More ground driving. Pulling something (a tire) behind them. Having Them pull something.
