Do you have any one in your area that might be knowledgeable about driving and experienced with your style of carts and carriages? In the USA if it wasn't real heavy something that low to the ground would be for ponies. If it was heavy it might be for a pair of ponies.

I have a carriage very similar to that!! Mine has a pole for a pair, but is smaller, with a single seat.

Do you have a source for the collars?

I am so excited to see this, and would be very grateful for any help! I have 1/2 Schwarzwaelder, 1/2 Arabian mares to pull the beautiful carriage!
