    Hi everyone. Lifelong horse lover, raised in a barn by a feisty mare....but that was many years ago. Saw mini horses at a parade, and decided that would be a great option to get back into horse ownership. Six weeks later, we have built an oversized 2 stall barn and fenced in a paddock. Yesterday my new girl came home. She is a 17 year old former broodmare, sweet as can be. She is great on lead, but no further training. I am excited for the challenge and plan to get her into cart training, but all kinds of in hand work in the mean time. She should be a great introduction for me... kind of a practice pony to get involved with the local mini scene. Luckily we have an active, sanctioned mini club in town!
    Would post pic but not sure how....

    Very exciting for you! One of the nicest driving horses I ever trained was an older retired broodmare. They are so used to being handled that they seem to take to training easily. Lucky you having an active miniature club close by!!

    Welcome to the forum! I'm so glad you have a mini of your own! This site has some very experienced drivers {alas, not me}. They are a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips.

    Hi Sharon!
    Welcome to the group! I'm a newbie too! I am a life long horse person, and I got my first minis a week ago. I am so jealous that you have a driving club nearby! I haven't found any driving clubs near me. Enjoy your new little girl.

    Welcome from Texas! <3 I am hoping to get into driving in the future as well. I have learned so much from following this forum, as well as The Essential Horse blog that one of our members writes. Best of luck to you!
