WOW! I know nothing of driving, but I wanted to say she's absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Soo well minded, calm, gentle and this is her 4th ground drive!

Give yourself some credit, you are doing wonderful in my opinion.

Keep up the excellent work, can't wait to see future updates.

Left Hand Percherons

Agreed. I soon won't have an arena like I have now so I took my opportunity since I've been introducing her to the cart, for over two months now everyday, I 99.9% knew my filly would be fine with the cart, I've prepped her very extensively for it. I had 'helpers' there just incase that .01% arose. She didn't flinch or have any hesitation towards the cart. She stood perfectly still for while I hooked her up and re adjusted over and over. We also only walked 1-2 times (more like 1.5) around the rather small arena (me walking of course) then unhitched and untacked her but, rest assured, I won't be hitching her up again until mid/late this summer and will be ground driving until then.

I will be likely moving her to the next town over with me in the next week or so, you're welcome to come by anytime I'll work around your schedule :) however, for me, it might work best once we're situated in the new place. Thanks for keeping an eye on me Left Hand Percherons, it's greatly appreciated, the most important thing, to me, is doing this right.

I know my cart shafts are too far forward and probably too high in the shaft loops. Would love some guidance from anyone willing to share? Also, my harness is a bit wonky I know I need to adjust the breeching and likely bring it higher up on her rump, it seems a tad large on her though so take that into consideration for your critique. I've adjusted my bridle (thanks taffy) and she's got a rubber half cheek snaffle. What do you more experienced people think about my harness placement? I feel like her saddle and breast collar were in a good position for her as goes for her crupper but I suspect I will need to adjust the backstrap to better position the breeching...

Oh and those are indeed socks... My carts been chillin' in the barn so I put them on to protect them from the ground a bit.

Also, I swear my hand position was better than depicted in the picture... I was kind of driving her along on her first turn with the cart since the poles were so horribly placed.

Just wanted to add she did everything amazingly as usual, such a level head. She immediately put her head down and put her shoulder into it like she knew all along. She defiantly got some strange look from her pasture mates nearby who were very interested in what she was doing. She's such a good girl as always I'm so happy with her.

Wheres the pictures. This is the most excitement this forum has had in a long while and I missed it.
