    Chiasuki, I will go out there tomorrow if it is not raining, and if it is then it will be Thursday, because most of them are closed on Wednesday. I will let you know!!

    Chiasuki, does your bridle have rings for a sidecheck, or slots on the crown of the bridle for an overcheck? And, do you want a little loop to hook over the water hook, or a snap for a loop on the saddle?

    I am going out there on Friday, because he will have the crupper for my saddle done then.

    Slots for overcheck, please. It goes on the saddle and I have all kinds of snaps, so don't need any snaps for the saddle.
    Do you think he will have them in stock or have to make it? I hate for you to have to make another trip. Maybe he could send it direct and I could give him my credit card # Did I give you my phone #? 309-721-0517
    Thank you so much! There are good, sweet people in our old world. DEE

But they are cutting corners on the new harness and doing away with the overcheck. Everything is money driven.
    lots of harnesses do not come with an over check. If you carriage drive they are against the rules at shows. Good training will keep them from getting grass. A Fine harness is the style for side or overchecks but you wouldn't use a fine harness on a haflinger.

    If you have a bucker/kicker I would get a kicking strap.

    over check bearing rein

    I totaly agree with you there churumbeque.
    Good training makes a good manord horse and as for an over check for a breed like that is a no no.
    Like you said a kicking strap would be better to solve that problem.

    My horses are 8 and 10 years old. They do NOT kick or rear, very well mannered horses! They have always used an over check straps on their harnesses. My father farmed with horses all his life and always had an overcheck on them. They were not harnessed until that was on.
    I am sorry, everyone has their own opinon, but please don't put me and my team down for a STRAP!!! I asked for a favor! Forget it+++ Thank you very much.

    I just pointing out why it wasn't part of the harness so you understood. You made it sound like kicking was an issue and we responded . You might learn something new if you just driven on the farm and might find some helpful tips here

    I do not think she ever made it sound like kicking was an issue.....but anyway.

    Chiasuki, this family is old order Mennonite, so no phone, electricity, they don't even allow rubber on their buggy wheels. They do ALL the farm work, milling, running machines in a shop, with horses. I admire them for sticking to their convictions, so I go out of my way to patronize their businesses.

    He should have it in stock. He had the crupper I needed in stock, but wanted to sew the snap in for me, so my pieces will be ready tomorrow, and I will let you know!!

    Thank you, Nancy. I deeply appreciate your help.

    Yes, I grew up on a farm, Drove teams there. My father was a horse trader. He would buy some raunchy horse or take it in on trade and I and my siblings !#13 of us, would break the horse out and he could sell it and take more in on trade, I learned horses from the ground up! NO BRAG, fact.
    I, my daughter and granddaughter have all shown western, english and driving.
    Overall, I won FIRST and my husband won SECOND in our clubs driving classes last year. So believe me I am not a Novice driver. Thank you for letting me have my say. DEE
