Here are some photos of my new 4 wheeler. Itís a wagonette, with a single box seat up front (specially made to measure for my ample bottom), and two inward facing bench seats behind. Alternately, the passenger/s can stand up and grip the handholds, which is whatís required at speed over bumpy terrain or around tight curves.

This is designed as a Ď3 stage CDEí vehicle, pretty enough to use for shows and dressage, but tough enough to go at speed along a cross country course. Itís got the mod cons, disc brakes and delayed steering, but still has an olde-worlde look and feel.

After my little wagon this vehicle feels like Iím driving a Ferrari. It is so comfortable, and because itís got brakes, handles better, steers better and is more stable, I am now driving the ponies at a much greater speed. Theyíre the ones setting the pace mind you, we are having fun flying along the roads, through mud, and on forest tracks.

The only problem with it is that I have nobody to take out on trips with me. Will have to try and convince some friends to come out for a drive.
