    Not trying to be rude, but no, because Emus will not pull a buggy. They cannot be trained to go in the direction you want them to, or be obedient. You are talking about something with the brain capacity of a chicken haha.

    Casuarius is right, both could get hurt, trying to even to harness, let alone walk them... .would hate to be in this buggie pulled by Emus lol .my Emus walk side by side with me, no need for harness....they are very intelligent.

    have to agree with the others, don't think that's a good idea.
    you maybe have seen OSTRICHES in photos pulling buggies but I personally would not even try that with them.
