    Put my eggs in the basket of "I'd never drive if I didn't drive alone".

    One of my goals for the near future is to set myself up to be able to *travel* alone with my driving horse, too, so I can...

    Keep an eye on CL, too. I picked up a great deal on a beautiful new harness, still had tags. Lady just never ended up showing her mini as planned. Win for me :)

    Although I personally am not a fan of how thin the breast collar is, and the single neck strap, it IS a beautiful harness!

    Love how shiny it is and all that black & brass... so fancy :)

    I have to say, I believe this photo is fake, too. I did a lot of goooooooOOooogling, and couldn't find any other references to this team of Morgans other than the same exact paragraph word for word...

    As others said, breeching needs to come up. I think it looks good on him, and if that's what you consider a fat, hair, "wild animal".... you should come meet my horses! lol ;)

    He's BBBEEEEEAAAAUUUTIFUL! WOW!

    What a lovely horse.

    I love my Comfy Fits! I have one for my 16.2 QH and 12.2 Hackney. They are just awesome!

    It's actually a little funny, because in CDE (which includes 3 phases, of course) you may be very likely to see collar & hames in use during dressage & cones, but not on marathon, when usually they...

    I gotta say... the more I see of sleighs, the less I become a fan of them.

    In an effort to take advantage of the snow, and still put the horses into *some* kind of work, I bought a toboggan and...

    I have to say, I love my MB's. However, if you have back issues.... probably not the best choice.

    Not only can you feel every. SINGLE. bump/rut when on non-paved terrain, but in my MB, at least...

    I have heard people say they will attach a tire to the back of the vehicle to add drag and help build conditioning. Never tried it personally.

    It is now happening here in Chicago, too. This will spread. What NYC started will become a major trend that will slow eat away at all equestrian activities.

    I agree, that your whip should touch the horse. If you use a short whip lash, you would have to step closer to the horse to reach him, which could put you in kicking range.

    The hip straps should be crossed, so they make a little "X" under the back strap.

    Left hip strap goes to right stifle, and right hip strap goes to left stifle.

    Most people I know definitely use a winch. I use "hard labor" and trust me, it's so not worth it.

    Goal for 2015- bigger trailer, bigger carriage, AND A WINCH.
