I have always been quite interested in getting a miniature horse, and undoubtedly in teaching it to drive. But I had the thought, how far can they go? We have a 20 year old Morgan mare who can get us places in a decent amount of time if we need to get somewhere. While our main objective usually isn't going somewhere, as we generally just drive around for the enjoyment of it, I'd still love to know how far they can go.
I am pretty much talking how far a well broke, in shape mini could go. Do they have a lot of endurance? I am quite aware that their stride is much shorter than a regular horse, but could they still keep up without getting to tired? I live out in the country, and I'm more talking about trips that are a couple miles [one to five is what we usually do], not going to town, which would be about fifteen. That'd be a little too much.
Thanks for the help! One more question, what do you look for in a driving mini?
