Appropriate driving age
When is an appropriate age for a mini to start driving? As in driving I mean actually pulling a cart.
I hooked my miniature horse up to the cart for the first time as a three and a half year old, and just let her walk around with it while I walked behind and ground drove her or lead her. After a month or two of that we did some light walk and walk-trot transitions. I didn't ask her to hold a trot for more than a few yards until she was four.
Before three, I'd do tons of ground driving and desensatizing, but no cart before then.
