Snappy is the coolest little guy you could ever own. The horse does everything. Today we introduced him to pulling a sled. He is trained to drive but pulling a sled is different in the noise it makes, the way it pulls on him. He tends to be a hot little stinker so I always stay on high alert but he did super. You can see in the first video he got a little too excited and had a little rodeo moment...lol. Notice I made the kids wear their helmets. By the time we were done he was pooped.
It was a bit trial and error trying to find the best way. To introduce him I led him. Then after running for 20 minutes and being wiped out I decide to give the driving method a whirl. It worked great. My husband only got me driving alone but after making sure it would work I took the kids on the sled with me. It was blast! I have always disliked my driving lines(what drivers call reins) but now I now they are way too short for sled jouring.
