They are fairly smart and can be easy to train. It is important to treat them like a horse and not a dog. All three of these horses went out to a trainer for driving. I have taught horses to drive but we have a couple of world class mini driving trainers in Michigan and we wanted them to be competive in the show ring.
This is a video of Rusty VERY EARLY in his driving training last spring.

I can't wait to get a video Angel driving. She is Rusty's full sister.

How can you NOT love a mini! I don't own one, but if I were to take up driving ( and I am seriously thinking about it) I think I'd want a mini. Especially after viewing that horrible youtube video about the driving accident!!! I mean, how fast can a mini really go compared to a full sized horse, right!

Mini classes can have driving accidents too but the size and power difference makes them seem less dangerous.

Minis are my favorite :) I have 15 currently (but one has a sale pending, and some are pregnant... my numbers fluctuate!) :)

I breed, show, love ect them. My main love is combined driving with my mini gelding Chili Pepper, and my hubby does it with his gelding Cruiser. We are also part of a mini horse driving drill team (www.minimystique.org) where we perform a drill and also are in parades and do breed demos.
