Youll need a tug stop ill tell you how ok if you look at the shaft as if your pony was in it so the cart is levle you need to drill a hole not right through but on one side of each shaft for a 3/16 1/4 pin to be inserted.
When 3/16 1/4 diameter pin is in weld them up so the pin is tite.
The pin length sticking out of the shaft needs to b 2- 2 1/2 inchs long.
Then check if you need an extra breeching d (ring) leave the oridginal one there just add another one each side of the shaft.
And your problem will be truley solved.
the tugs should be in front of the pins tug stops to stop them slideing back as it looks like the case the tugs slideing back towards the rings to make you over balance.
I hope this helps and let us know how you get on ok.
Many thanks.
Ps in my albums there are some diagrams which will help you understand I hope thay provide an insite as well.

hiya I think this quoat did not get through so ill try a gain thanks.
The tugs on your harness will slide down to the tug stops and stop them going any further causing your cart to tip up and help keep you in balance.
I have seen simmalar carts on here which have the same problem.
I think its a manafactureing oversite but can be easaler rectified to counter the problem.
Please let us know how you get on ok and hopefully soon youll be driveing and enjoying good times out with your pony.
Many thanks.

Tug stops will keep it from going forward but I am understanding that it is tipping up. I thing they are trying to put the tugs through the rings so they are hitching incorrectly and have the shafts too far forward. They may also not have the correct size cart.

How can I explain to a welder what I need? How much can I expect to pay? Any input will be appreciated.
I put some pictures in my diagrams of my troting sulkey ok so you can see for your self many thanks.
