    I am SO following this thread!!
    IF I can swing it, Buster Brown goes to my Amish farrier trainer for 3 months of driving training next summer. We'll drop him off, shoe all three, then leave him there while we take the other two out west trail riding. By the end of the summer I'll get to play at driving him with my breaking cart.
    I C A N T A S T E IT!!
    So jealous and happy for you both!! =D

    TAFFY. The driving is going well. I have had a few spook incidents and managed to handle them without any problem! I took the costume out to try on Goldie and found a small problem with fit so I think I have that fixed now. I'll try it again in a couple of days. I need to try driving in my long skirt so I know how to handle it. That will be in a couple of days too.

    I am very excited about the competitions. We are trying to make plans on how to get 2 carts and 2 horses to the fair. Fortunately the fairgrounds are only 15 miles away. Hubby will be staying at the fairgrounds on Thursday and Friday nights to be near the horses. ( we have an RV) and I'll be coming home to take care of the dogs each night. Friday morning is the costume contest and the over 50 open driving class that Hubby is in. Then the head to head contest is on at 6:30! I told him I was bringing home a blue ribbon and he could take the red or yellow, which ever. However, Honey could be hard to beat. She is steady as a rock and has 10 years or more of cart under her harness.

    I hope to have some good photos to post next weekend/

    I bet you can use/borrow a low riding mower type of trailer to get your carts there, then turn around and drive over the horses. It would be good if you could get a helper to "babysit" your stuff at the show grounds--maybe a horse crazy teenage admirerer?
    We transported a breaking cart on the cab of my old truck--1998 Dodge 3/4 T Cummins, my DD's is a 2007 Full T Doolie Dodge Cummins--when we drove the 13 hours to a National Shiloh event, but I don't know HOW we didn't break the front windshield, bc that's how we got it on and off.
    DON'T recommend doing that, but we have transported a LOT of stuff and horses to CW Events over the years, so I feel for you.
    If you're driving a bumper pull AND you have ramps AND you have a ditch, you might be able to get one or both carts on the back of a truck.

    We have the horse trailer and a flat trailer. A friend of ours has a bigger flat trailer so we may recruit him to haul the carts. We have a couple of helpers to act as grooms and do whatever. I think we have it figured out but maybe we didn't forsee a problem that will come up.
