Is this harness complete?

Hi, We're new to driving and looking for a harness. We found one, but I can't tell if it's missing something. Can you guys look at the picture and see if there might be something missing? And is it a must or optional?

I don't see a neck strap for the breast collar, nor breeching. You would probably be happier with traces that buckle in at the breast collar....this one does not.

It also may be Indian leather, which is the MOST horrible and unsafe material.

To use it with a marathon vehicle, it wil need new tugs, and that wrap style over girth will be a pain.

Think the breeching is in the second photo I looked at, and thought neck strap is in there too.

But would want to feel it before buying if it were me.

It is all there except for a driving bit. Agree, it doesn't look like quality leather one would be happy with. For $250, you can buy a nice harness. I would pass for now and keep looking.

I'd kind of like to see it on a horse...that way it'd be easier to tell if something's missing.

I missed the second photo, sorry!

Yes, it is all there, but I still don't like the things I mentioned before, PLUS, the leather straps on the neck strap (instead of rings) are too close together, making them high on the neck....great if you have an upright hackney or saddlebred, but too high for almost every other breed.

Do you know what the damage is to the blinkers? Being honest they are not a good set of straps,and they are miles too dear
