When we drove single, our cart was the same. You slide the trace over it, and put a pin in it. We've driven like that without incident, even with a possessed old mare trotting mach five down dirt lanes. We did not use a lynch pin, but I couldn't tell you the official name of the pin we used. We only have one mare that we use our breast-collar harness on, and that is how we hooked her to the cart. The rest of our harnesses are collar harnesses and have chains on the end of the traces. Here is a photo of said mare, I believe this was the last time we drove her so far this year. She's 23, and mostly a pasture puff these days. This picture is quite old, so excuse that her harness is a bit sloppy. Seeing it in the picture really makes me want to go and fix it!
