Now I have decided that Truffs will eventually be a driving pony I have got quite caught up in the idea and I have dived off into the world of harnesses, carts and carriages.... ...and I have realised that it is a whole new world and I don't know what any of it is!! It will be a while before I can afford anything for him (and a while before he needs it) and the plan for the winter is long rein, long rein, long rein! However, could someone please satisfy my curiousity and tell me the main differences between everything. What kind of harness and cart will I be needing and how much will it eventually set me back? Also, other than driving for pleasure (as in, driving round the lanes and to the village shops) is there anything he can actually do? Are there competitions locally for driving (like the equivalent of local/RC dressage/showing etc) and if so does anyone in my area (Durham/Cleveland/Teesside) know of anything?
