That's actually really close to where I take riding lessons now. I have a mini donkey that I have hopes to break to drive.

Thats great! I love mini donkeys!

It is usually only about $25 to join a club, and you can start to hang out or volunteer for something till you are ready to get the mini going. Soak up all the info you can, there are always people that needs some extra hands around. Call up and introduce yourself. Good luck!

breast collar fit

Here is my breast collar on my new harness. The leather is stiff and new. What do you think of the fit.

Your harness looks like a very nice harness.

The breast collar looks like it is the correct height on the shoulder, but it looks like the neck strap is going towards the rear of the horse instead of going straight up from the collar, (hence the droop at the buckles of the breast collar) and are your buckels on the same holes? You want to try and keep your buckles the same if possible. Now if your Pony has a cresty neck the neck strap might not stay straight up from the breast collar.Try putting it straight up and see if it stays.

The saddle looks good, it has enough room so it is not touching the horses spine, and the saddle is far back from her elbows.

I can't see the back strap enough but I am sure you know it looks loose.

I know you are just showing the fit of the harness, but start now getting in the habit of always putting the leather in the keepers after you buckle it.

Yea!!! You guys are looking good!!!
