Choosing an all-purpose cart?
I'm trying to decide what sort of cart will meet my needs as a driver, since I'd really like to start getting my feet wet with competing soon.
Problem is, I'm going to need a better cart.
Odds are good that I'm only going to be able to have one cart because, let's face it, I'm not made of money. So that means I'll be competing in the Pleasure shows, focusing on driven dressage, and also trail/general recreational driving.
I learned to drive in a Meadowbrook, but I'm thinking a wooden-wheeled cart isn't going to stand up to all that, plus it's pretty unwieldy to pack up for an afternoon of leisurely trail driving.
So what would be a good cart to consider for someone who both wants to show and go off the beaten path? Or should I just pick one or the other?
