    Default Things to do with a genius mini?

    DH and I were given a 5 year old mini as a wedding present and we currently have him in training to pull a cart and he is doing fabulously: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...type=3&theater

    I am trying to think of other things to do with him. He is incredibly smart and laid back, which is pretty wild because he was only halter broke when we got him 2 months ago. I have never had a mini before and would love some suggestions on what all is out there that we can do together

    Clicker train him to do tricks, work at liberty with him, certify him to be a therapy pony, teach him to ride in the car so you can take him to the hospitals/schools where they need therapy work done. There are lots of things you can do.

    I like the idea of clicker training! Any good references you can recommend?
