And I really want to have the chance to try my hand at training a horse by myself. Now, I figured it wouldn't be the best choice for me to train a normal sized horse as my first real training project on a horse. I've read many books, researched online, and would have my riding instructor/trainer help me when I run into bumps in the road. We will be having fences up at our property within 2 months, so the horses could probably come home around July. My trainer breeds minis, so I figured I could get one from her,one who is already slightly trained and people-friendly.
I would train it to be a driving mini, and for him/her to do tricks.
What do you guys think? Should I go for it later this year, or should I perhaps wait a while longer.
And what gender do you suppose would be better? Gelding, or mare? Absolutely NOT a stallion-NO SIREE!!!!
Thanks in advance!!
