Tandem or Unicorn
I was just curious if anyone drove their horses in a tandem or unicorn hitch? If so, I'd love to see pictures as I think it looks brilliant! 8-)

i've never heard of a unicorn hitch...what is it?

That's one horse behind the other I believe. Sounds odd and I don't remember ever seeing one in person.

ah, no iv'e never seen it, but I have seen pictures of it -- does that count? :lol:

Very cool - So I stand corrected (somewhat). It is actually 3 horses - the first one centered in front of the other two.

That is really cool though! Would love to see it in person

Yep, tandem is two horses front to back (not abreast) and unicorn is two abreast and one in the lead. There's classes at the Friesian shows (tandem riding,too). I'd love to do it; both look awesome!! :D

I love watching horses being driven and always had a curiosity for it but I think the gearing up of the harnesses etc, is what I wouldn't do well with.I'm to lazy :lol:
Are you wanting to start driving? Do you drive already?

Has anyone had a chance to drive four abreast? or more? I drove by a farmer with six abreast working a field and was amazed at it. Even four is something to see, I found this pic online as an example. From what I do know of driving, its alot more fair to the horses than in line, since the weight is evenly distributed and you can see who's cheating, instead of leaving it to the rear horses to carry the bulk of the load.
I'd love to learn more about the challenges of this, as I've only ever driven two at a time, anyone have any advice?
