    I think you'll be happier with a horse that you can ride vs. one you can only drive.

    Maybe its because I have a mini mule, but I find minis MUCHHHHHHHH less maintenance. Everything is cheaper to maintain them. Mine stays in the same fencing as my horse. Takes 5 minutes to trim her feet. She stays on a dirt lot and maintains weight just fine. Every thing is easy with her.

    Regarding the OP...why not both? LOL

    I have a horse and a mini donkey that I am training to drive. Both have their pros and cons but I love doing both. My donkey loves my attention while my horse would rather do horsey things. I have to watch what I feed the donk but the horse is easier to care for feed wise. I'd say both but...

    The trained trail horse who do the extreme trail stuff seems like the way to go. He sounds pretty versatile.

    I am going to try out his horse. If I feel we're not a match I'll take the money and start looking in the spring. I made the mistake of looking earlier (n)

    That thing is Odette :heartbeat: Shes a 5 year old Mini Molly Mule. The trophy was for winning high point at a schooling show in the next county over.

    Shes basically the best thing ever.
