The question is such - I've got a light draft type horse, who has been schooled for driving in the basic level and has pulled logs with this type of harness -
, but I'm looking into trying out this type of harness, because it is cheaper to get and easier to adjust to a horse (sorry, English is not my native language and I don't know most of the specific driving terms) -
I will get a light carriage eventually, but I was wondering, whether the second type of harness is suitable for pulling logs and such objects -
(that's two car tires combined with a log) . Will the weight be distributed correctly and in a healthy manner, if main mass of the object to be pulled will be staying on the ground, not elevated? I'm planning to do this for training, until he's ready for pulling a carriage or a sleigh.
