I took Rowdy to town today to ground drive with my sister. She got a horse last fall that was trained and even shown driving, but he is not ready for prime time.
We were out 2 hours; don't know how far we walked. Went into the Ag barn and maneuvered, then around the baseball field where a guy was mowing, then downtown, and stopped to visit with our mom. There wasn't a lot going on today, but we maneuvered around poles, railings, crossed streets, and had to cross two narrow bridges. Rowdy is definitely not ready for the cart in town; we will need to ground drive many more times. He does not react safely to things he doesn't like. But he was much better today with people approaching him to pet.
