SOME TIPS: The guard is a must for the safety. This could help from falling into the back of the horses or even from getting kicked! When ordering a bench be sure and order the fenders. The fenders can also be a big help in safety. This will help from not stepping between the tire and the cart. Safety is our main concern.
