I don't know much about training Minis....my friend had a stud and she bought him and he was broke to drive and ride. He had been given pony rides at birthday parties and stuff and was fine around kids. She also had this studs son who was two, and decided to train him to drive first, since he still wasnt big enough to hold weight. I think that it is a great way for little kids to learn how to ride. Its amazing that Minis can hold up to sixty pounds on their backs and up to five hundred in cart! Amazing horses really...
