Discussion in 'Driving Miniature Horses' started by MajorClementine, Jan 2, 2018.
Now that I am rejuvenated, I will write it down. Makes me tired to think about it again though!
Our road has been paved newly, so I couldn't drive for a couple of days... we went hiking instead and this week, I started driving again.
Tuesday, oct 23: 40 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy/Moony
Wednesday, oct 24: 70 minutes for Moony
Thursday, oct 25: 50 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy/Moony
45 minutes for Dapper Dan.
30 minutes ground driving Peanut this week. Thanks!
20 minutes of driving Peanut hitched. We had sun!
I did my carriage driving license last week, so I did not have much time for driving my own horses
But a few hours...
oct 27: 60 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy
oct 28: 60 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy/Moony
nov 3: 40 minutes for Moony
nov 3: 50 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy
nov 4: 60 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy
nov 6: 55 minutes of ground driving for Moony
hopefully I'll drive this week and next weekend more!
Tell us more about a carriage driving license.
All caught up! You guys rock!!!
This license is necessary for the most competitions in our country, but actually it's not needed for driving on roads. But there's a discussion the license will be mandatory for EVERY driver who drives outside. Maybe in a few years it will be necessary.
But for me, it was a great chance to learn more about driving. We drove in a city with much traffic, but big horses. I think I got much more practice in driving through heavy traffic and be more self-confident.
@MajorClementine thanks for picking up the hours!
I can add some more...
nov 8: 40 minutes for Moony
nov 9: 40 minutes for the team Massai/Teddy/Moony
nov 11: 360 minutes for Moony (Massai and Teddy were driven by a girl, but I think, we only pick up the hours that we drive ourselves)
nov 15: 40 minutes for Teddy
nov 16: 40 minutes for the team Teddy/Massai/Moony
nov 17: 60 minutes 4-in-hand again including my team Teddy/Massai/Moony
nov 18: 40 minutes for the team Teddy/Massai/Moony
drives are getting shorter since it's colder outside...
We had just enough snow to take the sled out this morning.
25 minutes ground driving Cappy with the sled. He has his old inglorious job of helping with the manure tubs back.
Then I got in for a quick 10 minute spin.
15 minutes ground driving Nugget today.
Ooooh, I'm jealous!
We have a lot of mud here, but no snow...
Drives are getting shorter again last week, very cold wind around here!
nov 22: 50 minutes for Moony
nov 24: 40 minutes for the team Teddy/Massai
nov 24: 20 minutes (very fast) for Moony
nov 25: 40 minutes for Massai
So Moony is doing really well driving single?
20 minutes ground driving Nugget. He doesn't have a clue but we have to start somewhere.
YES, he does great! He's a rocket!!! We are doing about 4 miles in a half an hour, lots of fun for us... And the scary moments are less and less, he doesn't runaway anymore when he's frightened. The driving license course finally gave me so much more safety and self-confidence. It's amazing how this can help to calm down the horse!
I drove on this week:
nov 27: 20 minutes for Teddy
nov 29: 40 minutes for Moony
Oh, I forgot to log my hours in the past two weeks...
nov 30: 50 minutes for the team Massai/Moony
dec 1: 60 minutes for the team Teddy/Massai

dec 6: 40 minutes for Moony

Awfully quiet around here!
A big 0 hours for me so far this month!
My grand daughter drove for an hour but I did not. I've been doing things with the horses, just not driving. The parade is tomorrow night but I don't know if I will go. May depend on if the wind is blowing.
