Looking for some plans to build a breaking sled for light horses.
Standardbred/Percheron cross actually. Maybe someone has had some good luck with certain dimensions. Thanks. Not getting any younger or quicker.

I always preferred a stone boat. You can load them up heavy enough to prevent runaways and they are heck for stout. Pretty hard to tear one up. . Try to Google either and you might get good info.

Thank you. Checked around the place and had a treated 10 foot 4 x 6. Used for runners. Had a hardwood pallet I lag bolted to them . Put old bus seat on top of this Put some tug hooks in a spare neck yoke I had and fastened to runner cross piece. I'm in business plus got a few things cleaned up.

I'm not quite sure why anyone would want a "breaking" sled. I like mine in one piece, all solid and nothing prone to breaking at all. (:

This is the type we trail ride in the mountains .12/15 miles a day.It's sitting on a trailer for transport.
