Hello there I am just curious how much your average light horse without any physical limitations & in good shape, around 1000lbs can pull ? I have done a lot of looking around and am still unclear as to how much they can comfortably pull ? I am sending two of my riding horses away to be broke to drive so that we can have little sleigh/cart rides on our farm so just want to make sure we get the right type of cart and know roughly how much our horses can pull.
Just for fun here are some pictures of my horses the first one is a Solid bred paint X gelding named Jake he is around 15.2 & 1100lbs and is around 9 yrs old. The other is a bay AQHA mare named Lark she is a 7yrs old and around 15hh and maybe around 1000lbs.
Any suggestions or tips would be greatly apperciated !
