I think it serves a bit of the same purpose as reins on horses...a slight tug can let her know what direction to go in.

It sort of looks like a muzzle, doesn't it Juicy? It is actually a halti, which I use to guide her while we are driving.

Ooooops, I was so busy answering juicy's question i forgot to add all my comments!

That's SO friggin cool. If Milo wasn't 17 pounds, we'd SO be doing that.

And another question....is the cart high enough to prevent your feet from dragging?

exactly, Milo's Mommy. It lets me keep in contact with her from behind, just like you do with a horse. I steady her pace going down hill with it, gently stop her with it, and let her know which way to turn as well. Works like a charm. She is still learning, but she is coming along FAST.

Yes, it is actually very comfortable. Feet don't drag, but are close enough to the ground that if I need to drag them or stand up for an emergency stop I can do it.

So far, lots of smiles, cars stopping to watch, thumbs up, smiles, waves, and all positive comments.

I can't imagine what will happen when I have a double hitch going!!

I know I keep saying it, but it has been so much fun. The other day a young couple came out onto their porch as we were trotting by, and I heard him say to her, "OMG that is the coolest thing I have ever seen!!!"
