In a past life I was a mechanical engineer. Burned out nervous breakdown... Long story and way over.

When I moved to the desert my goal was to design and build the above types of vehicles. Tubular construction Wire mesh for lightness and very very robust under-carriage. They would NOT be for showing only for pleasure and training.
My idea was to build a modular base expandable chassis (lynch pin adjustment up to two feet). All the same then add in modular differences.
One base built as a cut-under could be made into:
'Trail or Off Road
since the same humans wiould be driving no matter the size of the equine the width would not be adjustable. But by changing the wheel diameter and the length you could cover from 14 hand to 22 hand equines.
Once I get the design dialed in I can work on the smaller equine versions.
Seat would not be adjustable except for the comfort of the driver. Since its a four wheeled vehicle Balance would not be an issue.
The trail or Off Road version would have wider tires and even electric assist. For long grades or horses in need of conditioning.
