?? about driving
I bought a 10 year old haflinger to use with a cart.I have be using a sled to learn how to drive she does great.she has not be worked for 1 year how for should i start out driven her 5 miles,or can i go farther.It is a pioneer cart.

i wouldnt dare start out with that many miles. maybe 2 miles would be ok. you dont want to come into any tying up or anything like that. keep it short and sweet and build up on the miles over time.

I would think of it like you running a marathon. Would you want to start out with a five mile walk when you've only been walking maybe a 1/2 mile? I don't know how far you have driven her but start slow and work up. Add maybe a mile or two every week.
