I wrote a book! Actually I wrote the first edition a few years ago in as an answer to all the questions I was getting from my clients about how exactly do I hitch my horse to the cart? What is this part of the harness and what does it do? What steps do you use to start a horse in cart? I made up a little booklet to share some of my ideas and insights.
Now it has evolved into the second edition of which I am VERY PROUD. My Handsome Hubby helped me lay it all out and played a huge part in helping make it look professional. He was also the reins-man in the book, driving our little mare, Ellie, for all the pictures. He learned how to drive while helping me with this book!
This is a tried and true method that has worked over and over with many different miniature horses, ponies, horses and even a few donkeys. (I have even used this step-by-step procedure to help a gal start her pet buffalo in cart!! It was a bit different because when he didn’t want to play anymore he would just leave. He didn’t care if we didn’t want to go that way. He went anyway…)
I hope it goes out into the world and helps people understand the process a bit better. I hope it brings a sense of accomplishment to others that want to step into a cart behind their miniature horse, pony, big horse or donkey.
