This is Jamie (Circle J Just A Memory), my three year old mare. This was taken the other day, her third time hooked to the cart, second without my "insurance" of someone walking along with a lead rope attached, since I don't have an enclosed area to drive in. Drove her again yesterday and she's already much more forward, less head bobbing ... I've been having so much fun with her, she's got so much personality! She thinks that she is very important because she gets to be a driving horse, and she takes it very seriously.

LOL! That is because you live in the great white north!
This video and pic was taken on Tuesday. We did have snow on Monday, but it was gone by Tuesday afternoon, you can still see a little of it on the far side of the hedge in the photo.

LOL! Just to make you feel better .... here's me and Image a couple months ago driving in the same spot!



Thanks for the comments everyone, I can't wait to clip her (about a month from now!) and see that colour then!

Hopefully I can keep posting videos to show her progress ... I'm having so much fun with her .... or did I mention that already ...

Nope, not since Bunny have we driven a mare ... personally, I've never even trained one to drive, and believe me, it's different! She's more like a stallion than a gelding, asking "why should I" more than once through the process! But we wanted to show her, as we're all quite taken with her, and since she's old enough to drive, she doesn't get to go to the shows and only go in halter! Plus, this way she'll actually get exercised regularly!

I did work with Lady Di for a while a few years back, but she was a law unto herself. And Carrie had Robin ready to go in the ring when we showed her last, which is again, quite a while ago, but after we clipped her she got these big welts where the harness touched her, so we decided she was a princess and didn't want to be a driving horse.


You guys are driving a gelding? I thought you sold them all!
