    Lost Another Member of the Family

    I haven't been on much since May after my gelding went down after a horse show with injuries because I have been so consumed with going down there every other day to tend to him and meet the chiro/therapist. This past July 14th, we lost him to a partial or fully twisted colon which we thought...

    Hauling Carts

    I was wondering if anyone has ever hauled two carts in the back of their trucks before and how did you have theme situated. We are eventually welding up brackets to the back of the trailer but until it gets warmer in my area we cannot weld the aluminum. Right now I haul one in the bed of the...

    Backing up in cart

    I recently started taking my stallion out on driving trails and endurance style driving. I have a problem when he gets to water and never seeing it as a stream or massive puddles scares the crap outta him. The one problem I have is he tried to whirl around and head the opposite direction and I...

    Terrified of Cart

    Some of you may have remembered my post on my stallion who was absolutely terrified of the cart when his blinders went on and it took us a year to even remotely get him into it. Well I'm happy to say that the other day was the first time I was able to harness him up and cart him all by myself...

    Russett Harness'

    Just wanted to throw around peoples opinions for this. You don't see many russet harness' out there but is it frowned upon to use a russet or brown harness on a horse if you have a black cart? The reason I ask is that my stallion being a classic pleasure/western pleasure horse I was thinking...

    Teething Bumps

    My gelding was seen by the dentist earlier this year before the start of showing season and all looked well, he did not see any major problems or any problem areas that may form later. We happen to notice a few months later as we were cleaning them up for their first show that he had a nickel...

    Indoor Arenas

    Okay everyone I am looking for opinions, photos, plans what ever you got :D. If you ever had a chance to have an indoor arena how big would you need it? I know a big horse sized indoor arena would be massive for our little guys but I don't want it to small to where it makes driving and long...

    Soap Burn

    A few days after my gelding came back from a 4 day venture to a show the skin on his neck near his mane line started coming off in sheets perse, then it started flaking bad after we started treating it. I came to find out from the barn owner that my youth exhibitor (who is my 15 yr old niece)...

    Classic or Country

    My four year old stallion has progressed by bounds and leaps since we started introducing him to a cart. My problem right now is that he is in between a classic and country pleasure type horse and I really dont know what direction to go in with him. He likes to hold his head up high and really...

    Heavy in Hand

    I finally did my first driving classes with my stallion over the weekend and had no blow ups.. so we survived. I do have a question if anyone has any ideas. When we are home or warming up he is very light in my hand, but as soon as I got in the ring it felt like I had 300 pounds in my hands and...

    Horse Shows Section

    Figured I would throw this out there but would there be a chance to see a section on the forum for horse shows to be posted? That way they do not get lost in every day posts and if it gains enough popularity break it out by region or state depending. I know I am constantly trolling the internet...

After ample amount of time of long lining etc in April we attempted to attach the cart to my boy... before that we did the whole, walking besides the cart, in front of it while someone pulled it behind us. He...
