Miniature Geldings
CheyAut Ranch is currently home to 2 Miniature Horse geldings. Geldings make EXCELLENT driving
horses, since they don't get as distracted as stallions and mares! Driving minis is a lot of fun. Some
things you can do: Drive in parades, trail drive, drive around your neighborhood, be part of a driving
drill team, compete in combined driving events, compete in pleasure driving or in breed shows... the
list goes on! If you haven't driven a horse, you really are missing out on a wonderful way of enjoying
your horses!
CheyAut's Chili Pepper
Chili is an unregistered 2000 gelding who stands about 35". Chili and I enjoying
combined driving. We are currently competing in preliminary level in ADTs through the
Arizona Driving and Carriage Society. We have a BLAST racing through the cones and
hazards! Chili always has the fastest cones course, rarely knocking balls! :) Chili is the
2008 ADCS Prelim VSE Champion! At a mini/pony show 10/08 he was Grand
Champion Driving Horse! 3/09 he was 2nd place Prelim VSE at the Az HDT! At a show
10/09 he was Reserve Champion Halter horse and Grand Champion Driving Horse! He
is the ADCS 2010 VSE Preliminary Reserve Champion! In 2010 he placed 2nd in a
HUUUUGE gelding halter class and then was wonderful for a friend to show for her
first mini show, and first time driving! Chili had many more amazing wins/placings to
his credit, and it would get too long to try to list them all here as he earns them!
