    Well, I solved one issue! I took my harness apart for cleaning today and figured out the previous owner had switched the straps on the breastcollar and breeching! So now I won't have such an issue with a too loose breastcollar and high breeching! I made a set of harness pads today, too. So if the weather holds tomorrow, I will get out for a drove and take an updated photo.

    Click on GO ADVANCED button and then click on the paperclip at the top of the box then follow the prompts. Can't wait to see.

    Here's the new photos!

    Our boy Link, with his improved harness fit. We've taken him around driving, even through town to the ice cream shop with the kids. He is a joy to drive. We did get a lot of comments from passing cars. Everything from compliments to, "Is that Legal"? Haha. I feel like I need to post the vehicle codes on the back of my cart next to my slow moving vehicle sign! We also got bicycle lights to add to our visibility.

    Of course in the photos, we had just stopped quickly, so his traces are loose and his shafts are too far forward.....but we still make little adjustments each drive.

    Very nice looking boy!! Nice feet too.
    Yes it takes several times and adjustments to get harness adjusted correct especially a beginner. Cart looks like it fits him well, and of course you could tighten the holdstraps some.
    He looks like a dream to drive.
    I really like your cart. Do you get in from infront of the wheels or behind?

    Thanks! His feet are fantastic, and thankfully, he'll even let me trim him with a grinder if my farrier is too busy!

    The cart is a solid seat, so we enter in front of the wheels. It's just the basic EZ entry from (now defunct) American Cart & Harness, with upgraded wheels. I also just got a new set of caps for the end of the shafts. $2.98 at Home Depot! Cheapest part of driving!
