Comfort for my horse - a little "surprise"

 Horses are all about "comfort" comfortable in their surroundings make for a confident horse, comfortable in their tack makes for a happy horse..and comfortable in their carriage makes for a whole lot of fun for the horse and the driver (whip- is the proper term)

So,  Creekside Curlies is now the proud owner of a new carriage,  2 wheelers are easier for me to handle than 4 wheelers, and yesterday's RAC time (after an hour of fitting for comfort) driving in my NEW Bell Crown Phantom Carriage. My new "Phantom" is AWESOME !!!!  it is so comfortable for Legacy and for me! I still have some adjusting to do, one of the BC features is adjustable shafts, (forward to back, and close or far from the horse). One of my goals for 2013 is to compete in the marathon phase of a CDE (combined driving event)  and our new Bell Crown will make that happen in a whole lot of comfort for Legacy and I.


  1. Wow that is such a cool carriage! I have never seen a two wheeler marathon carriage.
    I use to drive Friesian horses in the Netherlands...hmmm I see another goal coming ;-)
    Good luck!

  2. What a lovely carriage! I can imagine you and Legacy will enjoy it a lot!

  3. Linda, I just love this carriage! I almost purchased a Running Brook this winter, but I decided to wait since I would use my Easy Entry for training anyway.

  4. Love it and can't wait until Abby is trained well enough to do CDE's. I'll keep my little training cart until though.

  5. How fun! Its always exciting to get new "toys" to use with our horses. Looks like you and Legacy will be having some quality fun time together!
