    I drive a shetland pony and I currently use a half cheek snaffle but he has been gaping his mouth. I used a mullen mouth when we were first starting but it was pinching him even with bit guards. The bit was slightly too big so I stopped using it. I’m thinking of switching back to a mullen mouth...

    Hey all! So, I have driven a fair bit in my past with my hackney mare, but am just now getting back into it again about 4 years later. Funny how little things can escape ones memory in such a short time! Anyway... I bought a cart for my horse, and am unsure how to use the single tree with the...

The only thing is I was told it is a pony sized harness but it clearly is a full horse size. I even tried it on my...

    I have a 12 year old TWH that I trail ride on but he is a bit TOO nosey, he wants to stop and look at everything.. I’ve honestly never met a horse as curious as him lol.

    Hello all. Firstly I'll just say that this is my first time posting here and if I make any mistakes, I apologize. I just recently bought a horse property with my mother, and the previous owner left a horse cart behind. I've owned horses since I was eight, but I've never delved into driving...

    I am interested in getting into Combined driving, in the future as my driving pony has not been hooked yet. Typically how much work on general driving happens before you begin combined driving? Obviously I'd want to take it slow. It's also not something common in my area so I wouldn't be...

    After lunch with my grandfather I decided to take a short subway ride up to Central Park. I've been meaning to head up there for a while now, so I'm happy I've finally gotten to make the trip!! I was so pleased with what I saw. As many of you know, the carriage industry is under fire. Mayor...

    Hi! I’m a new Horse Forumer and I was wondering a few questions specifically about driving. What are the benefits? How long did it take you to train your horse to drive? Has anyone made their own cart/harness? I have a 5 yr old Morgan (broke to ride) and I think driving is cool (I have never...
