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.
This is Wyatt, my new project barrel horse. He is just over 2 years old, 13.2 hh Quarter horse (not registered). Picked him up 7/28 from a muddy lot, where he had been picked on by an older mare. Was terrified, wouldn't let us touch him, ran in the opposite direction. It is now day 5 of having him home, and he is the sweetest gelding. Even let me put a blanket on with a "girth". Just want some conformation critique. The only issue I have with him is that he refuses to let me pick up his right hind foot. He is fine with the other three, and I'm guessing he is either sore in that hip area, or it's his hoof (which is missing a good chuck out of it). I will be adding photos to this album as the days come. I appreciate any and all comments! http://imgur.com/a/rywiH *I will try to get him set up right when I go see him today*
We're stationed in Germany, we live in Weiden, right near Grafenwoehr. I'm wanting to start our almost 3 year old in lead line lessons, preferably on a pony with Western discipline. I would need the instructor to be English speaking, for my daughter and my's sake. Is there any chance anybody has lived in this area and knows of a good stable for this?
