Very nice! Great examples of multiple configurations of horses in a variety of environments using different tools. The European use of a “jerk line” (I think it is called?) is interesting. Lots of voice commands I imagine. I particularly liked the pushing of logs into the pile by splitting the horses.
Thanks for posting this.

i like this too. i remember seeing a similar one where two horses were hooked to the same tree without an evener, and were free to swing out or in as wide as they wished and i thought that was an interesting hitch with lots of subtle advantages, and wanted to see more about it.
