While our miniature, Gloria, stayed at Kateland waiting to give birth, we decided it was a great idea to sleep in the barn on the grain bin until she came into labor. Three nights of that was quite enough for a lifetime… and still no baby. But every night staying at the farm, out came Ted from the house around 2am with two toaster’s strudels - one for him and one to share! Thank you for all that you have done for the minis and our family!Wendy Barbato
Any day spent at Kateland felt special to me, as it provided a true escape from the everyday world. Kateland is a total fantasyland for people who don't have a horse farm! Your dedication to the Miniature Horse is legendary, and I will always be thankful our paths crossed. You have started so many of us on the path of driving safely and successfully. Thanks for helping me get started with my driving pursuits.Linda Santos
Thank you so much for believing in me (a non-driver at the time) and for my lovely Inky. She has won many blue ribbons in Combined Driving at the Preliminary level, as part of my pair, as well as at pleasure shows. She has a forever home with our family here.Carrie Wind
I cannot put into words how you and your farm have changed my life and that of our family (though I'm sure my husband could find a few words). I am blessed to have a barn full of Kateland horses and a shed full of carriages - life could not be better!Joan McMahon
There are several good reasons to take a driving lesson.
1. It would be nice if you were smarter than your horse. It will need a lot of training if it has not been worked in several years.
2. Driving lessons are far less expensive than horse training. It is time and money well spent if you are going to train your horses.
Now if you are a little short on driving smarts, then even a great horse will have trouble making you a champion.

Breaking and Training
We break and train around five Kateland Mini’s a year plus another ten we are conditioning for competition and drill team work. We still find time for training outside mini’s and any horse purchased from Kateland can be brought back for training.
The typical mini has been broken to lead, walk, trot, back, and stand still. This takes around 25 sessions, or two months, to reach a level of a green broke driving horse. We break the mini’s at two years old, but limit activities. Cones and cross country will be begin when they are three years old.
For more information on our breaking and training, please email at firstname.lastname@example.org
