Seat on backwards. It is meant to be pulled from left to right as pictured. Horse drawn planter. Also that towbar is on the wrong end. See the planting shoes and the seed packing wheels "behind them" Readjust to travel the right direction.

Nope. rider also had to refill planter cans. Pedals are in front of the seat mount. I see now the 3 point mod. How did you hold reins backwards>? My Dad showed me all the horse implements. Also how he always ran a team of 5, one being a yearling learning the ropes. He and Grandpa had 8 horses at all times and usually two in training.

the hitch is in the correct position, I suspect the seat was turned after "the conversion to tractor power" so the rider could inspect the results. My Grandpa could plant 25 acres a day (checked row) with one of the planters and a team of horses as long as he had someone to move the wire for him. Before my time but dad said that he and his sister usually had that job.
