I've got an old Stanley plane and it works without any fuel at all as long as I keep it sharp. And I remember a maths teacher years ago saying Virginity is just like a bubble, one prick and it's all gone. How has Virgin survived with Branson all these years?

That's not well behaved, that's badly behaved by working pony standards, though pretty good for Henry as he's only been in the rig twice. Teaching animals to stand is the foundation of all working pony and horsemanship, and is stunningly easy.

It may well take 4 weeks or even longer to train a pony in a conventional vehicle, but in the saddlechariot it is much quicker (frequently under a day) because of the built in safety features and modern design. At the first sign of trouble I can remove the vehicle, and as any driver is aware, the pr...

The ultimate backfire. the food requirements of small ponies are mostly trying not to feed them. Laminitis, caused by too much, too rich food, maims and kills small ponies. But if they are worked, and leading an active life,they are less likely to suffer. The space requirement is defititely a piece ...

Dead right, and the first time the Cornish Muzzleloaders Association fired it with Henry in the ring, he certainly woke up, mostly because of the huge cloud of smoke that suddenly appears.

Training is a lot simpler than you might think because my system is safety based. If anything goes wrong, or is likely to go wrong, pull the ripcord and the pony is not attached to the vehicle. If the pony is likely to attack if released, use a different pony. I have had complete beginners driving a...

Jack, quite agree on speed, a big tractor would rip through the work, but I thought this was selfsufficientish not agroprofitableish, sorry for the confusion. And Archie, is it more democratic to let them get bored and die of laminitis. Henry really likes going out, not as you put it in some smart c...

wasted horsepower

There are at least a million horsepower being wasted every second in the UK. Horsepower can actually be produced by horses, and of course ponies donkeys mules etc. Guess where it got its name. If we are bringing back windmills, tide mills and all the other stuff that used to be in the history books ...

Organic Quad Bikes

I am the nutter who invented the Organic Quad Bike, and am also a passionate believer that ponies and horses are urban animals. I just want to get them back to their natural habitat. http://naturaldriving.co.uk/image_library/DSC04863.JPG Also what towed equipment is most useful to the small holder. ...
