One horse open sleigh! [pics]

A neighbor restored an old sleigh and asked if he could bring it up and have my horse pull it. I was a little wary because my horse is still fairly green to driving (I started him this past summer) and all that he has pulled is a small two wheeled metal training cart but I figured that I would give it a try.
My husband packed a great trail around the fields at the farm and my horse took to pulling the sleigh like a champ. This horse never ceases to amaze me. Whatever I ask of him, he does it without question. These pictures are from today, the third day that I've taken my horse out with the sleigh. I took the pictures while my husband was driving so no great action shots but it was still a beautiful day for it :)

Thanks guys! There actually are jingle bells along the underside of both of the shafts. They definitely add to the ambiance!

Great pictures, and a super looking horse. I'm getting the itch to get back to driving. I used to have a cart similar to greentrees, but the increased traffic on the county roads scared me out of it.
