Hi! I'm Janine and I have 4 minis ages 12, 16, 20 and almost 30. They all drive. I've had minis for several years. Love the littles! Just joined, looking forward to meeting you all!

I added my old guy's photo to my avatar....I'll try to attach a few more of all of them! :). My 30 yr old is the one in the single photo. The three in the driving picture are my new guys...I've had them just a few weeks.

I'm in northern Ca about 4 hours north of you. There were a lot of minis that used to come up to the HDTs here with a trainer from Pasa Robles but he moved to Texas last year.

I would say it depends on the health and condition of your mini. The nice thing about driving is that it is easier on them compared to weight bearing activities (like riding). I have a 20 yr old who was just diagnosed with cushings...I'm not sure if he will return to driving (maybe) but my 30 yr old is a fantastic driver and he loves it.
