There are many options out there for miniature horse vehicles. So many that it can be overwhelming
I often see people driving their minis with a poorly balanced cart. This can mean the cart is tipping downward toward the pony, or that it is tipping up, pulling on the pony’s tummy.
The other day when I pulled my cart out to drive I noticed that my seat felt like it was tipped back quite a bit after I sat in it. I had my son come out and take a few photos and sure enough there was quite a tilt!
I took my bike and Sky to my friends house for a play day and when I posted about it I had lots of people asking how I knew Sky loved the bike. And did I like it? So I wrote this on Facebook and thought I should share it here too!
Just another post about balancing a two wheeled vehicle...
I just want to share how my bike is working. I keep hearing that it is not possible to have weight at the horse end of the shaft without using wrap straps. I have achieved that while using the open shaft loops and driving with a loose over girth.
Miniature or small pony easy entry cart. Nothing fancy will be used for training.
I see this ad all the time. Then I see the replies:
I get questions about which affordable easy entry cart people should buy. Which one did I buy? Though I have many blog posts here talking about my EE cart, showing photos of it and discussing it, I thought maybe I should have a post that is ONLY about it.
I am sitting here thinking about driving ponies. I know! That must be such a surprise. Something that has been rolling around in my mind for some time now is what it takes to drive a pony and a two wheeled cart, an easy entry cart or a Hyperbike or a show cart or a sulky. Anything that only has two wheels and must be balanced for the pony to pull it.
