Oh, man, Simon, this looks like fun!
Do you ever get to the US? Are there people here using the Saddlechariot?
Love your "organic all terrain vehicle" pitch -- I see the green revolution now...
(Gas here in the US is quickly approaching European prices and we live in the land of commuting. I see the shift now from "A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage" to "a Saddlechariot and pony in every garage!" Oh, how I'd love this!)
In the next year or two my husband and I are going to move back to the East Coast (where we're both originally from) from California where we're now living, so we can buy a small farm and I can realize my fantasies of living on the set of the movie, "Babe." I now have a new layer to that fantasy -- Circe, my Haflinger, driving in a Saddlechariot as we tool around the property and pretend to do chores...and down to town for groceries...
(And I think I need the Ben Hur theme music in the background...)
All the best,
