    Annie 35 minutes driving.

    My 12 year old friend also drove Annie for a half hour so she got a decent workout.

    Drove Annie for 40 minutes today. This was our 34th drive and she is coming along nicely!

    Drove Kriss Kross for 15 minutes. He is either in pain or having anxiety like he has in the past. He was out of his mind dangerous, rearing and bucking and jigging, just going crazy. I took him out alone so it isn't Annie. :-(

    Hey there everyone! I wanted to start this last year, but only managed to get around to it now. I started driving my mini around September last year, and I absolutely love it! Luckily she had already been trained to drive before I got her so it was pretty easy to start with her. This weekend I went to a show and drove her for the very first time in a different arena, as well as competed in our very first show, where we got 2nd! She was great through all of it, even though she was super sassy for all of her other events XD


    In total I ground drove Jessica for about 30 minutes, and drove in the cart for about 15 minutes.

    This sounds like something I've been through with a few horses. What strategy do you think you will try to deal with this?

    I know you probably have thought of this, but how are his teeth? Any chance that there is a sharp point or something that is causing pain?

    The first thing I did when he started this behavior was take him to the dentist, so he's just had his teeth done. The guy is really thorough.
    I took Kriss & Annie. Annie who is a lot larger, only needed $20.00 worth of sedation while Kriss had $45.OO worth (required repeated injections) and was alert when finished which I found interesting.

    I have been giving it a lot of thought and in the meantime I'm going to give him a little time off and some pasture. I'll post more thoughts on Your Drive Day section.

    Ground drove Annie for 60 mins today.

    We worked some on the stand. Much easier when sitting in the cart or talking to a neighbor so I was working on my own patience too!

    Zorro drove 3 miles today in 90 minutes, walking the entire way. We worked on being responsive to the bit, moving back and forth across the road and lots of whoa and then walk on!

    IMG_20200221_160159.jpg I did a thing! Got my mares going as a team. They did well considering Clem is naughty and has never been part of a team.

    30 min ground driving Clementine and Candace
