    2 idea's harrow and a cart/trap

    By trade I am a Fabricator/Welder, so making things out of steel/Aluminium comes naturally to me. So does design.

    My horse is a Throughbred mare.
    What sort of cart/trap would be best for her?

    Current idea's are:

    Light weight,
    Off road capable,
    Carry 2people,
    Possibly be able to change from wheels to ski's for snow fun,
    Some storage,

    Second is:
    We have a few big fields that need a harrowing. So the plan is to make one and get my girlfriends Cob to pull it.
    My idea's for this are:

    Box frame 2m long,
    10 drag chains to break stuff up,
    Eyes at the end, for harness hook up.

    Can anyone see problems with these?

    I have made stuff like this before. But not for a long time. My general role is buildings and staircases. Both will be made for cost price apart from harness and stuff which will be made by a professional.

    Mark, the old 4'x3' harrows often sell for as little as $5 set. I pull one with the quad or 15hp riding mower so the cob should be able to pull it.
