Here is my mini stallion Fredrick Jones in his breastcollar style harness and also with his collar and hames harness.





Here is my dwarf, Dusty, with his "harness" which is really our draft horses halter put on upside down. He has a tiny little wagon that he pulls his toys around in! He really seems to enjoy being just like the big horse! NO FLAMES please! I don't really drive Dusty! The little wagon weighs less than 10 pounds and rolls easily in a breeze. I am going to decorate it for making our Christmas cards with him.



Here's our draft horse for good measure, what a contrast!

No flames Lotsocats, you can see you are just playing- I've done that headcollar thing before too- I used a couple to turn my Dobergirls into Huskies to help pull the wheel barrow and we harnessed a really tiny one "just for fun" with one too. I've never seen the "horse nappy" in action before, thanks for that- it looks far neater and tidier than I had imagined.

If you look again at the draft horse's picture, you can see it hanging behind the horse. It catches the "Poops", I have also seen them actually attach to the harness and hang off of the horse itself, but this one looks tidier for sure.

Oh, so that's what the poop bag is called! I think nappy sounds better!!! Yes, this is a nice "nappy". It attaches to his britchen and to the back of the shafts so it doesn't constantly bang on his legs. Plus, when it gets poop in it the weight doesn't pull so much on his harness. It was 107 degrees the day this was taken and I'm sure Santana appreciated not having that thing hanging against his rear legs.

Do they make the "horse nappy's" for miniatures or I guess in a smaller size. That ones looks neat and painless. I would say when you use it, would depend on were you’re going.

Here are some of mine. I have so many driving horses and am in the mood to be driving BIG TIME but it's like a rain forest here lately. So hot and humid and I don't want to make them work in this sauna atmosphere and don't want to be out in it really myself. I hope the humidity will go down a little soon so I can do some driving.

Here are four of my nine driving horses (8 minis, 1 morgan). This fall, I hope to add Sunny (Tibbs Sundowner) to these numbers and plan to train him myself (for the accomplishment and to see how good I can do him compared to the mare I trained 5 years ago before I knew much of anything). Pictured in order are Lou, Goldie, Derby and Lonesome:

Hi Maxine,

Gage posted the pic for me. I think my girl is doing fairly well driving for a couple green horns. We do not show, but do, do the odd parade and local fairs.

That was the extended trot. He was trained to drive from his hindquarters. That gait of his is natural, not enhanced in any way. A lot of what he does is because he moves that way naturally.

This is our mini jack in harness. Barbara was determined he was going to go backwards.
