Im in hertford just outside north london.
I see. I shall look at leather then
I literally have no idea where to start. I have being an avid fan of Barry Hook for many years now and although I spend hours watching his videos, I am still lacking all basic knowledge to driving. What do you recommend to start with?

Does your horse lunge ?.
And that's the first steps and geting your horse use to your voice and comands as well and lungeing in harness as your horse will get to feel all the parts whilst working on the lunge.

Mine hasn't got the light brackets. I will also be changing some of the hardware out for more time appropriate stuff... LOL, I would love to buy a pair of brass lights but, it will probably have to wait as they are quite pricey!!!

Man all of this talk on starting horses makes me want to re purpose my flea-bitten grey mustang mare to drive... Her and my cob would make a good team they get on very well but, it would be sort of awkward my fat cow hitched to my mustang lol!

hitching up.

i think you should change it to life has no remote control hitch them up and drive them your self.
yea that sounds great.
she was a great mare and got very protective as my eldest brother found out as I was drunk I came home and she was stabled at my place for a week and I gave her a bottle of cider I had one to and placed the empty bottles out of harms way.
well my brother saw that I was not home and decided to feed her there she was standing over me she must have been like that all night bless her she put her ears flat back and atacked him we had a good bond between us she had 28 years of hell but I gave her 8 years of reabilatating love.
till the end of her days I stayed with her till the end.
snowy all ways remberd never forgotten.
