Ride with your shetlander or miniature horses for a sulky is really fun to do. However, driving is a sport that requires some practice, even when you are an experienced rider. You can consider obtaining a driving license or driver's license This is by no means compulsory everywhere, but you will learn the correct basic skills of driving such as how to properly place a harness on your horse and how to put your shetlander or other pony in and out.
In a sulky you communicate with your horse via the harness and with your driving whip. The driving whip serves as a replacement for your legs. Both you and the driver and your mini-horse have to get used to that way of communication in the beginning.
But if this adjustment period has been, then you can fully enjoy. Enjoy driving outdoors via the most beautiful routes, bridleways and driving paths.
