What size cart for a 12.2hh Welsh Pony?
I am looking to a buy a cart for my pony. I can only afford to buy a second hand easy entry (although I would prefer a Meadowbrook). I have never learned anything about sizing a cart because the Friesian I use to drive all came with accessories included (Meadowbrook, Vis-A-Vis, etc.). :) I know only a little about driving - I self taught myself to drive the Friesians both single and double .... and lived. :D But I enjoyed it tremendously so I am quite excited to have my very own little Welsh pony now to drive.
I am on my own in figuring out what size to buy. There are a couple of people in my area who drive, but it seems to me that their carts seem much to low for the horses/ponies they are driving so I have been wary of seeking their help. The same applies for the people selling the used carts. I am really not comfortable driving a cart that seats me with my eye level below the back of the horse (am I correct to assume this would be dangerous?).
So what measurements would I look for in an easy entry cart for a 12.2hh (maybe 12.3hh) Welsh Pony?
