So as some might remember, I aquired a beautiful Norwegian Fjord mare 2 months ago. She's 14 hh, 10 years old & greenbroke but she's doing incredibly well
She still has issues with turning, stopping & such but her calm disposition makes for easy training. She can be stubborn but she's not a bolter, rearer or bucker.
I have her in a side-pull but combo that seems to be working well.
Anyhow... my ma-in-law has several horse carts on her place (they're owned by a friend but they've already given me the OK to use their equipment) and I was wondering if it would be a good idea to train her to drive.
Do you think it would help with her turning, etc to be taught to drive?
Also, since I've never driven a horse how would I go about teaching her?
What are the steps in training?
Thanks for any help!
