On Nubbin Ridge Farm in Vass, North Carolina, this Bird-in-Hand Country Gig is hitched to a three-year-old Haflinger stallion named Awesome Gold. This well-bred Haflinger is a true 14.1H pony and looks great in this well-balanced gig. Gold can easily pull the gig because the whip's weight can be adjusted forward or backward and the shafts float in the tugs. (Photo by Ilene Keatley - Driver is Michael Keatley)
