You are going to get a bounce with all carts. Depending on the horse their action and how you are harnessed it's hard to say without a photo.Does the cart have springs? Shaft loops secured down could be one problem. Shafts to high or to low another.
With a four wheeled vehicle you don't get a bounce because the shafts connect to the axle and shafts are able to move up and down without carrying the bounce to the carriage.
