    Anne, the big hitches can distribute the work more evenly if they are well-driven. They can walk out more steadily and need fewer blow breaks. The rolling wheat country of Oregon, Washington, and...

    I had one horse who would pee himself when confronted by swine. He never had problems with bladder control while in work, unless you trotted around the corner and met a hog. He wouldn't drop, but...

    Correct, the spare at the end ]of the outfit was "the spare tire."

    It isn't that uncommon for a horse to get a leg over a trace or over the evener in front of them, even in teams of 4, 6 or 8. ...

    Let's hope that Mary can make them change their ways and respect the older horsemen. As long as she has a fast horse and a fast attitude, ain't no stopping her.

    Foxtrot's, this hitch is being assembled as a tribute to a past big hitch driver, and while big hitches of any type are uncommon (let's define that as more than 20), they are driven. Combine...

    SmartAlex, he's also gotten multi-hour cooperation. They DROVE the team 100km to Calgary for the parade, stopping to camp along the way, using side walkers to make sure everything stayed orderly.

    The horses are trained to lie down so that they are less of a target, and provide shooting cover for their riders. I've seen pictures of cavalrymen using their horses as gun rests, for stability,...

    I can tell you an even better way to check for price drops if you have a smart phone.

    Using the earth mover as a trick mounting block is one of those "hold my beer and watch this" stunts. It works for rider #1, but rider #2 is putting her fingers near and in a pinch point, and it...

    I don't recognize this as a harness attachment. I don't think it's a hame strap, as those are just a leather loop that buckles through the top of the hames, and the snaps wouldn't work there. It...

    I had to think a moment to realize it was a bloodline and not just a redneck description of a sliding stop.
