    i have decided it's time to learn to drive... I plan to put Eva my fell pony back in the carriage. She used to drive regularly at county level before her teens but hasn't driven since.

    I have bought a tedex harness and a little carriage in readiness for Eva going back in the carriage. The couple I am having lessons with are going to re introduce her to harness and give me lessons to

    No idea on make. It actually looks very basic so it could be something that's been cobbled together. If you've got someone experienced helping you. Get them to check it's safe.
    Look forward to seeing your updates.
    The one who would probably be able to advise on make would be Wally. But haven't seen her post on here for ages. I miss her posts. Hope she's ok.

    Exciting stuff. Although ultimately I decided that driving Albi wasn't for me, I so enjoyed teaching him.

    I went out driving with a friend last night. I was the person standing at the back. It was so much fun, something I definitely want to do more of. Keep posting updates.
