    Help with Figuring Out/Harnessing To Vintage Sulky

    Ahh, okay - I am in the UK. So yes, when I say Shetland I mean our native little chunky dudes like this!: As opposed to: I actually did not know the American ones were totally different animals and I am amazed! You learn something every day! Ours are definitely more like mini draft horses ...

    Help with Figuring Out/Harnessing To Vintage Sulky

    So I am not truly a mini horse person - I'm actually (or at least I was initially) mostly interested in dog driving with my Newfoundland, however I work at stable with a pair of Shetlands who are trained to drive. I've just purchased an old cart on eBay (pics attached) with the intention of...
