Appelby horse fair

Well spring is in the air and I have been spending a lot of time at the stables.
We are getting ready for Appelby horse fair and I have a commission for a new sulky for the annual race, It is all alloy construction and incorporates three large sweeping wishbones which give it the bulk of its strength. I have not been to the race for a few years and am looking forward to it a lot. The town swells from a handful of inhabitants to about fifty thousand travellers and gypsy's and is a pretty big deal over here.
I will leave a link for those who are interested.
