    As others said - used MB's in good shape - $1000-$1500 is a pretty reasonable price. I believe I paid $1000 for my horse one, and $1200 for my pony one.

    New, they can cost quite a bit more like...

    I taught Chewbacca to drive the year he turned 12. Prior to that, he had been a rodeo/barrel horse (yes, really), and started into jumping and LL dressage.

    The mini I taught to drive was 10...

    His cart has 80" shafts from trip to tree, and overall length of the cart is 13 feet from tip to back of rear step. It has 48" wheels, and TBH,...

    Once again, a wealth of information! Thank you all!

    I am very excited about my new car. It's definitely the nicest vehicle I've ever owned! I still miss my Jeep, but am looking forward to...
  5. Entering Trailer Market Soon - fitting cart

    Ok, so I have measured and measured my carts & trailers... and I just don't have a way to really try to see how said cart would fit into said potential trailer. So I thought I would ask.

    I just...

    This was a parade and the horse on the right (off side) rubbed its bridle off on the other horse. As Drive NJ said - bridleless driving horses are a very disastrous thing. Even the best of them...

    I got my guys all out to the toboggan on the 8th and then hitched them all to the cart on the 15th. I did some long lining in between and have done a little more long lining this week. I wanted to...

    Curved shafts should still end at the point of the shoulder, like GH said. The only shafts that run shorter are closed-loop "marathon" style shafts - those end at the saddle.

    I agree with painting it if you are going to go with a color other than a natural tone. Stain may not necessarily give you the result you want. You can always stain it and see how you like it, then...

    Frontier... at least if it is the place that sells carriages on eBay (from Missouri) - gets much of their merchandise from China. I would be wary. It's half the price for a reason.

    Believe me,...

    I stopped riding 3 years ago, and I don't miss it ONE IOTA. I LOVE driving so much, and think my bond has gotten better with my horses over the years.

    It is a shame. On the other hand, fantastic that Travis just stopped and didn't lose his mind and end up a runaway disaster.


    Maybe it's time to go bitless in the driving world :p

    DJohn, I am concerned that you have a continuous bucking problem both under saddle and in harness, and your response is to have CTJ moments with the horse.
