lol! While my harnesses don't weigh anywhere near that much I know how much fun it is to harness and hitch a wiggler. My stallion stands great at home for everything. Take him to a show and he's a handful. He knows when its time to put on a show. He's a roadster horse and he sure as hell acts like he has no manners when it comes to standing still in harness. At home he's an angel. Turd
LOL You win.... my first show as a spectator that had driving horses had roadsters.... OH MY GAWD... that looked like fun... then they had a pleasure class same horse hitched to a Viceroy and an elderly woman in the seat. She was decked out with Black sequined dress White gloves and a Sparkly feathered hat with a thin lace veil.... When they came to the line up four men leaped the rail to tend her horse dust everything off and she gave them a nod and backed off. Horse stood like a statue all parked out...
Then it was announced that this was her final drive after having driven for more than eighty years... she and her stallion were retiring.... They won the blue and the victory drive had us stomping the stands.
It was then I decided THAT was what i wanted to do when I was her age...
I didnt do the show thing but I still want to be driving when I am older.
