Can it be driven?

I saw this set of tracks in my driveway today left from stone dust on the wheels of a Pacific Darmor that I had turned around by hand in order to hook the next horse of the day. I set some cones next to them and pondered this.....

Is it possible to actually make this turn?

The carriage did it with 35 cm clearance....
Training Level clearance.

Red = Front Track      Green = Rear Track

But can it be done with a horse or pony attached?
Where would the front feet have to be to make this?

It probably can not be done with a Training Level Horse except by pure luck and it might not be fair to even ask for it.
