[QUOTE=Taffy Clayton;1489079]Here are some examples of show carts, and a show hitch wagon. Wagons and Carts « Diamond J Farm
Mostly they are wooden wkeels, no car tires.
The first photo was my show cart, till I got the cart in the second photo. Then it became my breaking cart.
Then the cart in the second photo, I decided was too heavy for me to handle and I got the cart in my third photo. Which is a little too big for the Arab and a little too small for the Clyde.[/QUOTE
Taffy, hope you don't mind me pointing out some critiques on this and what I would change. It might help the op.
The 1st photo should have a breast collar not a neck collar. If this cart had axle draft like in the 2nd picture then the neck collar would be appropriate. The cart is also too small, as you can see the shafts need to be higher on the side of the horse but that would change the angle and the shafts would not be level which this style of cart the shafts should be level.
Picture 2 The gig looks to be most suitable for this horse and the harness is suitable for cart.
Picture 3 as noted is too large for this horse but I think you could raise the shafts a notch or 2 and it would level out and look better. This type of cart and breast collar are appropriate.
Also if you are doing carriage driving the type of cart needs to match the style of horse. Like Taffy's meadowbrook with the haflinger go together.
I have a gig for a friesian cross.
