    Default cart and harness on cl...question

    I am thinking of going and seeing this cart for my horse. Now, my horse that I would probably use is a 16 hand perch/tb - with a percheron build. I'm thinking this might be too small? Or would it? I'm pretty sure it would fit my qh, but haven't decided to drive him (though he has a good mind for it).

    Oh, my question is what you think of the cart/harness? There is no brand given but it "looks pretty" to my untrained eye. I suppose I would need to measure my mare and take those measurements with me.

    I would pass.

    Personally, I dont think the harness leather is in "Like New" condition. It looks like its been hanging in a shed or garage without being put away correctly, the leather looks very dry and brittle.

    Plus it looks to be too small for a Perch/TB that is built like a Percheron.


    Is the singletree fixed ?

    I would not pay $700 for the lot.

    Thanks for the insight. I knew that I didn't know enough to make a decision.
    I don't know about the singletree but it does look like it's fixed on the pictures, doesn't it.
    Thanks.
