As for a cart, depends on what kind of driving you're looking to do. If just having some fun driving around then a Frontier Easy Entry is affordable and do well.
I agree leather is the way to go. Take the measurments so that the harness fits. Start with a cart first the easy entry carts don't cost a lot of money but you do get a bounce from them on rough ground. If your buying something at an auction take someone who knows a little about driving and carriages before you spend $
