3 year old Halflinger mare, 2 weeks into her training to drive.
Have you always wanted to know how to drive a horse? Or do you have a horse or pony you would like to be able to drive? Have you considered a second career for that outgrown and much loved pony? You don't want to part with your first equine love or child's pony, but he's doing nothing but standing around the pasture being bored!
Now here is a way to still enjoy his company out on the trails and roads -- DRIVE HIM!!
What about that draft horse colt you bought as a weanling? He was so cute and furry then, but he's getting BIG! Now what do you do? Anytime from 18 months on is the time to break him to drive. Draft horses are wonderful. They retain what they are taught at an early age. You can turn a drafter out for a year or two and then hitch them again. Except for being a little awkward and out of condition, they will remember all of their early lessons in a very short time.
Don't let your guy stand around till they are 4 or 5. Get an early start on their training before any bad habits are formed. Send your youngster for training at Meadow Acres Farm and you soon will be driving down the road in a Meadowbrook cart having a fine ole time!
