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.
