Hardy, Sorry for the misunderstanding.  My post should have read, "Pray for 
us - we'll be doing what everyone tells you not to do; namely, two completely 
inexperienced tandem drivers teaching/driving two completely inexperienced 
tandem minis."  I left out the second "tandem" when I sent the first post.

I should also have explained, for those who don't know us, both Barb and I 
are fairly experienced drivers with singles and Barb has driven pairs. The 
two minis Barb owns are currently in training as singles.  They won't be 
long-lined tandem until they both understand what is required of them as 
singles. Sorry, but I don't think that makes either Barb or I a fool. It does 
make us willing to try new things with our animals.

While I agree with most of your post in that all horses deserve training 
before being asked to perform, I would ask that, in the future, you get the 
facts before jumping down someone's throat. A few civilised questions on your 
part would have elicited these facts and would not have left me feeling as 
though you have attacked me without provocation. You are a world-renowned 
trainer and competitor but today you made me lose a lot of the respect I have 
always had for you.
