    Laurapratt, he is beautiful!! Lower those shaft loops a hole or two so that the cart seat levels out, and you will be good to go!!

    You may find you want a set of pads for the harness, as the breast collar looks a bit fine(like a show harness) and they will be more comfortable on trails for him. The breast collar could possible be raised a hole, too. It should be above the point of his shoulder, but not hitting his windpipe at the base of his neck.

    Have fun driving, and NEVER take the bridle and reins off before you unhitch, and never hitch before you put the bridle and reins on!!

    The nice thing about EE carts is they can be very versatile, even the economy ones. I love driving mine.

    I recently upgraded the wheels on my cart. It came with 24" wheels and those always felt low. My dream cart is a Frey Sprint, but who can afford to drop 3200 beans on a cart used only in an arena (not me ) But my cart now sports bigger wheels that level my shafts out and put me up higher so I can actually see my horse's back instead of his butt.

    Driving a few months back (I hate having my knees together when sitting down, so.. that's how I sit.)

    Monster wheels! I almost got the solid rubber ones to make more of a faux Frey Sprint, but decided the wider tread was better for the arena.

    I have the cobb sized easy entry cart. It's a nice cart and easy to transport. You can check out my photos of Goldie. This one is a horse sized cart. The seat, etc, are much higher than mine. Originally they sell for about $500.

    As to using it in shows, possible but may not be approved for all caliber of shows. I'm no expert but this is what I read somewhere.

    Good luck in getting a cart.

    California Dreaming, where did you get those wheels? Are they wider than the ones that come with the cart? We have a very sandy trail and wore out our little haffliner oe day. We thought wider tires would make the pulling easier on him.
