sleigh

Its definitely getting wintery so just thought i'd ask does anyone drive with a sliegh? Does it differ at all to a cart or carriage in its handling? How do the horses cope with icy roads? Does anyone use sledges to take hay out to feilds, etc. pictures please if possible, lets see some snow on screen ( but not outside I hope!)

We drive sleighs all winter, the Horse are ok on ice just take it slow. I like the way sleighs handle in snow, they are alot more peacefull and quiet

I am going to "eves-drop" in on this thread, I'd like to hear what people have to say.

I would love to get a little sleigh, but for now I have my eye out for a good sled to hook up for some winter fun! Any one out there have comments/suggestions on that as well?

It is fun. What size of horse are you planning on hooking to a sleigh. I have built them for everysize of horse and could maybe give you some ideas

I had a nice little sleigh but used it maybe once a year, not enough snow.

I gave it to my sister that lives outside Aspen. I think she uses it all the time up there.

5percherons, I would be interested in hooking up one, or two, of my miniatures that drive, not my riding horses, any tips and suggestions would be great!

I just posted some pics of wagons and carts I have built. Minis are fun to drive just have good harness and good equipment and if your not comfortable ask for help the first couple times

Exactly why I would like snow.
