My Mini just earned himself a Lifetime Home (as if he had not already secured that ).
Yesterday was the 1st time I harnessed & drove in awhoooolelottamonths
He was a complete & total Rockstar.
2h drive at the County Park that maintains trails for us.
Following friends driving a DraftX & a Friesian, those little legs did not break from trot until the very last when I took him back to the trailer while the Big Guys continued on.
He could have gone on, but I took pity on us both - he has done nothing more than amble around my pastures, I am Old & it was chilly when we were in the wind.
Including a stretch of lovely canter when he was scared his nose was not his preferred 6" (slight exaggeration, but…) from the end of the cart in front of us.
Practice for when we move to Intermediate in Cones
Going Home Alone:
Here we are bringing up the rear:
