'Driving Miss Lady'

I think that my dear husband has found his equine niche in life and may never 'ride ' a horse again.
Thanks to some friends of ours who are members of the Percheron Horse Society, we were able to finally hitch and drive our Lady last Saturday. Lady hasn't been driven for the two years we have had her and who knows when before that, although I have been riding her.

She was extremely patient with us and our total inexperience in all this

Al started by ground driving her first, then the wagon was dragged out ( by us) to the field and she was hitched. We only drove her for about 15 minutes since she is rather out of condition.

I think even Lady had fun.

By the way - is that the same horse - my goodness she's - ahem - gained a few pounds :-)
