Does anyone train/show minis? My mom works at a barn that has three; 28 year old stallion, 11 year old mare, and a two year old filly. I've been bugging her and bugging her about showing Treasure, the filly, and she finally said I could. I'm going to go in everyday over the summer and get her conditioned, since she's gotten very chunky over the winter, and start with some show training. She knows most of the basics; standing to be groomed, clipped, bathed, and for the farrier, walks on a lead, etc. But like any young animal, she looses interest and starts acting up if you take too long. I'm hoping to show her in halter classes and maybe even train her to drive sooner or later. Her sire used to drive, but hasn't since last year, so since the cart is just gathering dust, I want to put it to good use. Does anyone have any advice for me; what to start off with, etc.?
Thanks in advance
