I realise that in cities a lot of horses and carts aren't an ideal option. Buses better as they carry more people. But what about in small country places?
Does anyone here depend quite heavily on horses for transport/work rather than owning them for leisure? Ture, they need to eat but do do most forms of transport. And the manure is a bonus.

It is the horse cart/buggy and it's ability to negotiate hills I am unfamiliar with.
