When I went to test ride a horse. Several states away so a plane ticket was involved, they told me of all previous health history including injuries. If I were selling I would disclose at the time...
I have been shopping for a spider phaeton and they looked like your carriage without the dickey seat. The older carriages is was common for turning the front wheel to get to the step.
The circle Y bob marshalls are made with the peaked pommel and it is the ONLY saddle that I have found to fit my high withered horse.
There is a leather used cob size on the CDL list 300.00
Brass is more formal so it can depend on your overall turnout.
Just because it has the name "deluxe" in the title does not mean it is the same. It is just marketing. The super deluxe had more options and it was the 1500.00 ish range. I am a believer you get what...
I have been harness shopping also so I can understand the confusion. My guess is the less expensive one has less adjustments, stapled keepers instead of stitched. It really doesn't tell much in the...
Not sure about the Welsh breed shows but the rule book will give you lots of info on what is allowed. ADS is what I am going to show in next year and there rules are totally different than my breed...
I just ordered a new carriage yesterday and we are ordering it 13-15" longer than the horse. But a 4 wheel is at a lower angle than a 2 wheel so 2 wheel could be less distance
This is just some general sizing I pulled off a website that sells shafts.
Making a general statement. If it were me I would hook it up and look at it.
As far as the wheels the shafts should be...
small pony 60"
large pony 65" sounds like what you need
I said most go closer as the 19.5 rule is too far. The used one you are looking at doesn't sound too long. Only 10" longer than pony which may be too short.
I meant black as night. I am not even sure what Bl magic is. LOL
My wish list was brown leather gloves
and black magic
Oh yes and a number holder
I have a 2 yr old that has been driven only once and I would trust her over some that have had lots of driving experience.
I was at a clinic and heard horror stories of several accidents at the...
I just measured my horse tip of the should to longest on the rump and she measured 63" but I am guessing a 72" blanket would fit her. I am probably getting 80" shafts
I would ignore the blanket...
I jsut sent you an Email of a used Smuckers harness on a friesian.
Good price also
I think the pad looks too narrow for that cart. It looks like it is more for a lieght weight sulky.
I have a black friesian cros. I am getting a painted cart with a burgundy seat. My apron will also be burgundy to match the seat for a proper turnout. Not just any color I decide.
I have a brown...
I was always taught to hitch the horse while holding the reins. It has alwys workied well for me.
Sounds like he needs more time to get used to carrying a rider. Lets him build hus confidence for a season of riding. When you are ready to canter try it up a small incline 1st. Do not rush him
