I do not have full driving equipment as I would like. However, I do have the thing on the neck, sorry, do not know the name, normally the full tack would include wooden poles to the cart and a wooden bow on top to keep it all stretched out. However, we tack up with bridle and long reigns, 2 lunges or driving reigns, put the neck thing on, attach ropes or straps with something in the back. Usually starts with just a piece of wood, then tie tyres to it etc. Gets them working and thinking.
Sadly, they don't like games. One was playing with a bucket so I bought him a jolly ball - completely ignored. A big ball was ignored too. Makes me sad.
