Maybe a friend who drives mentioned that your horse might do well in harness..


Emily would be happy to evaluate your horse, pony, or mini to determine current abilities, suitability for driving, equipment fitting, and potential for growth areas. Contact her to discuss your interests and schedule an appointment!
