I think I have mentioned before that carriage driving is not a popular sport here where I live. There are some local people that drive full size horses, but I haven't met anyone in my area that drives minis. In general, minis are not held in the highest regard (putting it nicely) by the rest of the horse world in my area so I have been pretty isolated. I recruited my husband to drive, but he is only available on Saturdays, so I have been trying to keep my two horses driven and in shape on my own with a whole lot of other things to do. So here is my news!!!! I found out that there is a family down the road that drives teams of Percherons. Long story, short, one of the daughters actually LIKES minis and I have hired her to drive a couple of days a week with me and to work with my horses in general. She is a junior in high school but seems really competent and drives in the Draft Classic. She probably knows way more than I do, so I am really excited! She is going to drive her golf cart down here on Wednesday after school for the first day of her first job.
