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?

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!

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.

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.
