    I haven't advertised it yet, but I am planning on asking $1200. Will probably take $1000. If it doesnt sell right away will go down to $900, No less than that or I will keep it.

    I am terrible at selling things, I don't want strangers comming to my house so I have to meet them somewhere like the park or a parking lot, that gets to be a hassle. So I want the process over with as soon as possible.

    That settles it, if it has not sold by April 3rd, I'm taking it to the Waverly, IA sale.
    And I will stop by and see Churumbeque on the way.

    How much for the draft harness?

    Also, what was the shaft height of the cart you used on the clyde? I'm looking at getting a mare that is about 19hh, and that looks like my shafts should be 56" above the ground, I have yet to see anything that high!

    If you don't mind me asking what are the arms on the back for? LOL. It's so "hi-tech" looking I don't know where to begin. It is beautiful though!

    When you are competing in the marathon phase of the combined driving event, your groom/navigator stands on the back of the vehicle and holds on to the handles. The navigator helps add ballast to the vehicle to keep the rear wheels from coming off of the ground and helps through turns to keep the vehicle from becoming off balance.
    The navigator can stand upright and hold on to the back of the seat, as in the photo, but when a competitor gets to really going you will see a navigator hanging on to the handles and hanging 3/4 of the way out of the cart around corners.

    The handles on my vehicle are also adjustable so they can act as a backrest if I have a passenger sitting on the fenders.

    balanceing

    I can see that you will be skidding and churning up the dust with that one and it looks like your in fo a lot of fun times there.
    On a dirt surface and when I was in the indoor school I use to lean the oppersit way to counter the forces and use to churn up the surface it was great fun at a canter and I hope you have a great time when yours arrives.
    Youll have to get some pratice in miss clayton I think youll have to fix a trypod of some sorts so you can film your self and your horse in action.
    I wish you and pilgrim all the best as you said he sounds a great horse.
    Many thanks michael.
