Pony Carts

Would it be that hard to make a simple homemade one?
I was googling pictures of simple pony carts and it looks
as if you had the proper equipment it wouldn't be that
difficult to make.

Can anyone find a picture of a pony cart that actually
labels the parts? I couldn't find one, lol.

Heres one that lists the harness parts. I think that would be the toughest part

Yeah, I think building the cart itself would be easy but the harness would be the hard part!!
Are you wanting to build just the cart and buy a harness or make both yourself?

Lol!
You should contact your nearest driving association about the different parts of a cart. They would be the experts and should be able to help more.

Blueprints for Pony Cart?

My husband has the knowledge, skills, and tools to make a pony cart, but we need a blueprint or schematics. Anyone know of a place that might sell the blueprints? A couple years ago I actually found a place that did sell them, but after a computer crash, I lost the website in favorites and can't find it anymore. Thanks.

That'd be really cool if you built your own cart!

Ride more, worry less.

What sort of carts do people build?

I am imagining a jogger (steel / metal frame & body vehicle), not a timber body or shafts.

Can someone post a picture please.
Would love to see what vehciles people make themselves.

Regards,

Laura.

Easy Entry Cart

Yeah, I'm just wanting a easy entry cart for a pony. I can buy one for about $600 - $650, but hubby says he can build one for less than half of that with steel tubing.

Probably not what you had in mind but it's cute.

I have seen the amish build carts more like wagons small sized and use bicycle tires.
