I had a busy day Sunday. Ran 10 miles (ouch, after riding for over 3 hours on Saturday, this was tough!) and then went to go look at that easy entry cart.
The cart was absolutely perfect. The shafts at level were the right height, width and length for a horse of Daatje's size. It's easy entry so will be great for quick dismount if needed. I'm so thrilled! As a bonus, the price included a very nice and barely used beta harness, also in horse size. The harness is not as fancy as I would have purchased, but it will be a great training rig. The cart was purchased used by the seller 7 years ago and the drove in it only a handful of times. The harness they purchased new when they bought the cart and again only used the set up a few times. (didn't get into driving like they thought they would). I paid $800 for the cart *and* the harness!!! New the cart would cost me $1800 shipped and the Harness would easily be $650. I am so stoked to get back into driving with Daatje.
|Oops, look what I just did! :D|
Of course, bringing the cart home and cleaning the barn out to make a place for it cut into my wood stacking time. I only got 1/2 of this pile put up before the sun went down.
So last weekend I rode 17 miles, ran 10, bought a cart and harness, cleaned the barn and stacked 1/2 cord of wood. I need a nap!
I'll get better pics of the cart and harness over the Thanksgiving holiday, I'm sure. It's so neat to see the big cart side by side with Rainbow's little cart. :D Can't wait to post more of our driving adventures!
