Thank you MV, the photos are great, I never knew how a tandem went together. Although I am sure I will never try it, It is a good thing to know.

Taffy, google Barryhook. He is a British driving retrainer. The traffic he drives his horses in is amazing. The drivers seem a bit more respectful than in North America. He has numerous videos on youtube. He was the one who explained the "hammer" to me.

Tandem sounds like such fun!!
I've seen the Amish farm with their Belgians--my farrier is Amish. I watched them plow with 8 horses across. Remarkable.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! All these photos are beyond helpful! I really appreciate them!

We had a semi successful tandem ground drive the other day. The reins were pretty short so i had to stand at the wheelers barrel, I think he was a bit confused. Hah! We did make it once around the arena with out lovely header helping us out every once in a while!
