    Feel free to ask questions, right?! That's what everyone is here for. I saw the cart ad, and I just have to say I pretty much agree with mostly everyone here...

    Bucking straps are always a good idea ;) Perfect for those just in case moments.

    I absolutely love getting my horses into a nice canter when they're working, and I do use the hill method to...

    I'm so sorry about your pony, but don't give up on driving! There ARE affordable equines within any budget out there. Sometimes it can indeed take a long time to find the right on, but when you do,...

    I don't know if there's specific ways to store shafts. Most people I know either hang them on hooks along the wall, or put them on top of/under being stored. I have a set of shafts being stored and...

    As Buck pointed out with that ad - for the price (including a Zilco harness, which alone probably cost $1,200) that pony sounds super.

    Heh, MSP - that's funny you came across their farm. They are about 1 mile from me, and to clarify, they actually have in total around 700 hackneys on 5 different properties. The main facility in...

    This one meets all those criteria. He's 10, and has been an Amish driving horse. He's being trained/retrained to be a show pony & CDE pony right now. So I guess I mean "once he is trained" to mean...

    Teeth can definitely lie! LOL!

    About 5 years ago, my (then 12) year old hackney was aged during a float to be "only" around 8. Considering we had already owned him a couple years, that would...

    I have to agree, that many driving horses are cheap. I also agree that cheap is indeed a relative term. My cheap may not be your cheap. I believe that most (high level) drivers looking to purchase...

    I'm going to just through this out there, and it might be a little crazy, because I don't know JR. But...... have you ever tried ground driving him without a bit and see how that goes?

    Your words ring very true. I have no money, no truck, and a horse trailer that does not fit my horse & cart. If I want to go anywhere, I use a 2 truck, 2 trailer, and 2 person set up, which means...
