    Hi Laura, love photo's of Owendale Claudia , you both look great together. Noticed you've been at the Brisbane Royal last 2 years very envious. I do Harness driving in Far North Queensland. I drive a Viceroy, my husband drives to. Been driving for about 15 yrs, Been with ponies/horses all my life. We usually follow the shows here. Used to drive our stallion, but now am driving his daughter.
    Tried to post some photo's but failed, will try again later.

    Hi LauraB, Nice to be here, there is not a lot of forums that have harness, and it is so nice to find one. Just come back from driving this morning. Had to leave a bit early this morning, as it gets a bit hot and humid here. But had a nice drive. Between buses school kids, dogs and traffic!. Horses have so much to cope with these days.

    Hi Deblyne,

    Sorry my internet service decided to not agree with me the past month, but all is well now.

    You should just head out to Brisbane Royal if your able to make the journey. Its certainly not that daunting once your in the ring ... its getting into the ring that is sometimes the struggle.

    If your able to post pics I'd love to see them.
    Are you a member of a harness club in your area?

    Regards,


    Laura.

    Me with Merrick at the Malanda 2008 show Had a great Drive today. And finely worked out how to put a piccy on.
    Have been a member of the Townsville club, they are a great lot. They come this way for shows.
    But I am 4/5 hours drive from there. There a quite a few drivers here though.
    Will try another photo in a minute if this one works.

    What great ponies and wonderful that you both get out showing 2 ponies at the one show.
    We decided a few years ago to only take one horse out at a time, so I envy both your enthusiasm.

    I'll have to add more photos of our guys once they loose some weight and can fit in the shafts LOL.

    Hi Orchid Park, no mean feat getting two ponies in ring with two drivers. So good luck! Can be done. This year we will be only using Merrick. Like to enjoy ourselves a bit more.

    Well I don't know how you did it with the 2 to date. It is such a huge task getting to a show with one pony and all the gear.
    I remember we took our mare to a show and I also took a led horse along. The pony (claudia) had 2 gear changes as we took both the viceroy and sulky.
    I forgot to pack the sulky seat and a driving apron for the viceroy. It was totally embarassing ... in both classes there were 6 - 9 competitors ... that was the last time I took 2 horses and 2 turnouts. LOL.
