What breeds of smaller horses or ponies seem to be more inclined to have the right mind set to drive? I'm very new to driving, and I can ride well, but I have a bad back and my Chiropractor has forbid me riding. I mentioned driving and he was fine with that. I think it'd be fun to have a chariot or a lil 2-wheeled cart to ride around in. I'd like to stick with a smaller horse, some 14 hands or a lil smaller. What would be some good suggestions? I wouldn't be opposed to a smaller mule either if it would be a good option. I don't plan on buying for some time, I'm just information gathering and learning for now. I do have a friend at church who has mules and give wagon rides, so I have someone I can also learn in person from.
Comet98 posted a topic in Barrel RacingMy horse is a Quarter Horse/Standardbred cross. I'm planning on showing her in not only western pleasure but gymkhana as the main event at fairs and fun shows. I especially wanna do barrels and i know Quarter Horse's are the best for that so i wanted to know people's opinions on whether or not she would be a good barrel horse for it or not. I'm not gonna travel to the NFR or anything, but i'd like to know what y'all think about her breed and stuff. If anyone has any other ideas for me with how to help her become a better horse for barrels i'm definately open to it! She was trained by Chris Cox, which he specializes in western riding and showing. So, she was bred to compete for something. I'll pose some pictures below too! I've gotta build muscle on her as well, but she's a long back horse which i was wondering would either help or not help with turning?
