How to make a gig?
Many horse owners are thinking about creating or purchasing a gig. For skilled people who are ready to make a gig with their own hands, we have several tips that will help simplify the process and avoid major mistakes:
Balance. Since the two-wheeled cart, the main problematic issue is balancing. First of all, it is necessary to decide how many passengers will be calculated for a gig, since the weight distribution plays a decisive role.
Wheels. Most often for the production of a gig we use wheels from a motorcycle. The axis can be left to the motorcycle or use a pipe. It is desirable to make the distance between the wheels the same as that of most cars, so as not to experience permanent problems with falling into the track.
Load. It is also important not to overload the horse. If the weight is distributed correctly, then the pressure on the horse should be provided only by the shaft (about 10 kg.). Also it is necessary to remember that the gig has a complicated turning mechanism.
Comfort. Separate attention should be paid to the seat, since riding a two-wheeler can not be called comfortable for passengers. The seat should be made as comfortable and soft as possible.
