    Any Drivers?

    Are there any drivers on this forum? Not cars...horses! Does anyone drive their horses?

    I don't know a lot of people who drive. I love to drive!! I just have a small pleasure cart that I bum around in. I have a good time with it!!

    Do you drive?

    I used to have a Mini/Shetland cross that was alot of fun to drive.

    She looked so cute hitched up to our little red cart. Lol.

    We have a couple of people who drive in out saddle club. One fellow has a really cool trailer that he puts his horses and wagon in. He has all terrain tires on his wagon so he can go through most of the areas we trail ride. I think it holds around 6 people and its so much fun having some of the older people who normally wouldn't be able to go get to enjoy the countryside. Plus its fun to have them around when we do parades. I will have to get a picture of them next time we ride (in the spring) and post it.

    I have an active team Feathers.... Is that the hoof of a shire in your avatar?
    Most recently, I hitched up my older pair with my younger pair to see what I could do with my team of four. I had great results and hoping to show my full team in the 2008 Wisconsin State fair.

    Close to a shire...those are the fuzzy feet of my Clydesdale!!!!

    It's wonderful to know that there are others who drive here!

    I think it very neat that you have an active shire team. That would be an experience that I would love to have.

    There seem to be a few here that drive in shows. I would like to show in cart one day too!!

    I don't have Shires Feathers, I have a small variety of Percheron Drafts.
    If you want to see some pics. I have some posted up.....

    We have two other horses that are not pictured here, and they are our riding horses....
    Showing a team is HARD!!!! My wife does alot of strange training with these animals. For example, when our horses start coming in for the day in spring, they listen to a recording of loud people and crowd noise all day to get them used to being at the shows.... Weird, but it works! We also have to spend alot of time grooming! Practice with the cart or wagon(What ever I feel like hitching) is a chore all in its own.
    I hope you make it to some shows in the future Feathers, and best of luck to ya!

    I have a small crew of retired and semi retired standardbreds,these guys are bred for it. At the moment I`m experimenting with teams of two, and on one unpleasent day a troika set up.Lots of yelling, screaming and bitting, and that was just me.Quadruped pro wrestling.I`m in the planning stages of a four wheeler with motorbike tires just to go shopping or such,then I`ll pick the lucky two.The only real probem with these guys is there racing urge when put side by side.We will discuss this further, the lads and I.

    Oh, wow, your Percheron's are soo beautiful!! What a nice bunch of horses!! I loves drafts!!

    I thought your avatar looked more like a percheron compared to a shire!

    I bet harness racing horses still would have a bit of a habit to race while they are in harness. That would be an interesting experience!
