    Shafts should be level or tips up a slightly. You should be able to lift the tips with one finger on each tip with someone in the cart. There should be a strap from the shaft loops that go under by the cinch and hold the loops down. This puts the weight on the cart not the horse.

    Check and make sure it is not too far back. In the 2nd pic it looks to be pulling up. Sit in it and have someone hold the shafts up, it should be pretty well balanced and not fall up or down very easily

    Okay. What can I do about her lugging (head off to one side) which is what she is doing in the second pic? So the cart is fine for her and I should be able to continue using it?

    Is she hitched properly? I made the mistake of threading the shaft loops through the tug stops LOL

    It looks like you are pulling her that way?? But if you are trying to get her over and keep her head straight the whip is a good cue for her to learn to move to the side. So I would be gently pulling the right rein but if she moved too far right then gently tap her on the right side to keep her to the left.

    I can't tell from the photos on where your breeching is hooked to so that may be in question

    I actually wasn't pulling her that way, I always have to keep my reins taut because if I don't , she will run. There was a huge ditch there so I didn't want to pull my right rein I will try a whip but she is scared to death of them because she was abused

    There is a ring thingy on my shaft loop so I just hook it there or on my tug stops
