    Euro Style Collar vs. Draft Style Collar?

    I solely drive with the Euro Collars for all my minis and love them! I started with the breast plate and moved on to the full collars and then about 10 years ago got a hold of a Euro collar. I never looked back. My horses all prefer to use them.

    Next help with adjusting to balance out weight of cart on small mini

    You breechin is supposed to stop the cart from rolling forward going down hill. That tells me that the breechin isn't tight enough on the horse and cart. Thimbles only take the place of breechin, not used with it. With the open tug that you have you need something to hold the tugs down and in...

    Next help with adjusting to balance out weight of cart on small mini

    HI first I would like to say nice mini! Now on to the problem. Your tie down strap is not used correctly. It is clipped on to the breast plate neck strap. It should be minus the hardware and wrapped around the shaft on either side of the tug loop then secured to the buckle on the over girth...

    Who is going to the National Drive this year?

    I have friends that travel from Texas year year. It really is a lot of fun. One of those things that you should do at least once. It's my vacation each year now that I found it. I am bringing more people from Ontario this year, 4 I think at last count! There is still time to convince others too!

    observations of the horse industry

    I rescued 3 mares and 2 geldings last year from the meat market. Out of the 3 mares 2 were bred. One passed away from the condition it was in, we couldn't save her. The other foaled. They all came with papers, some double registered. I hate it when I hear people say, if they are registered they...
