    HAHA michael!!! I could use one of those but, alas one of the one power tools I don't have. Oh well, it will probably look better in the end if I finish it by hand since I started it that way.

    LOL, I think I will be driving for a looong time. I have done dressage a lot growing up but, for some reason it never occurred to me to drive. Despite my grandpa owning a carriage company. I think when you're very young (or at least for me ) not riding just isn't living.

    I've gotten an amazing amount of crud for not riding my filly yet. Even when I explain that she's only two it seems everyone looks past her age and just see a decent sized horse is good weight. Even my farrier always asks when he comes by,"have you ridden her yet?" "you know, you don't weigh that much she'll be fine"
    I just politely say no not yet.

    I'm glad to say though that driving (even though I haven't really "driven" just yet) has been the most fun I've had around horses yet. Not only has the sport even from the ground been greatly rewarding but, the people are incredibly friendly and supportive. I look forward to joining a local carriage club this summer/fall (we have two that I know of). All of the groundwork necessary for a level headed driving horse really makes for a A+ partnership with your horse. I've found even in situations where I've found myself startled she remains her stoic self. I couldn't tell you how impressed I was the other day when a giant crash happened on the other side of the loafing shed. I jumped about three feet in the air and two feet over but, she did what she was suppose to and just stood put. Another time, in the arena a semi hocked it's horn right behind her, she got so scared she just fell to her knees and hung out looking back at me like "what should I do???"...

    Either way, long story short!
