    OMG you made me laugh soooo hard! Hahahaha!

    I think my mare would forgive me if I bumped into her butt since we've done alot of work around my flying mounts...I'm fairly smooth NOW, but I didn't start that way! She's always been fine with my failed attempts

    We dragged a rimless tire around last winter and she was great - barely even looked at it, no concern with it "following" her. Might get my sercingle out and touch up on her ling reining now! Great idea OP

    Ugh, some of you Canadian folks want to loan me some snow for this winter? I bet Denny would be great at skijoring, we could set some land speed records LOL.

    Ha ha ha! Yes, training my horses to pull a cart atm & got a racing sulky to use. Jokingly said that if I hooked them up to it before doing more prep, it definitely would be a racing sulky! People also do it here with dogs, using bikes, seeing as we don't do snow here!

    You don't have to do it with skis, you can use a sled or snowboard :)

    Really, unless you were loping and asked for a dead stop, you probably won't have much trouble avoiding the rear-end collision. And even if you do bump them, if your horse is prepared, then it shouldn't be any big deal (though I would go without blinkers on the horse just so that they could see me coming if I couldn't stop). When we used to get snow down here, we had an old car hood that we would hook behind a team of horses and ride on. Talk about dangerous, but it was fun as all get out. We just had to take it slow. At one time, I also had a dog sled team that I used and had a homemade sled that I hooked to them. It wouldn't have worked in deeper snow but it was great for what we had; which was usually not more than about 6 inches.
