He sure does have a long whither, the saddle is in good placement. I think it looks good, for ground work and such. The breeching looks in good placement. Now you might have to make adjustments when you hitch to a cart.

Lets see the breast collar placement, and the bridle too!

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

nylon harness.

I had a nylon harness made by cottage craft and I had it for a few years as I did not have a leather one.
We use to go for a few mile drives and snowy use to sweat up.
The harness did not streach at all.
After she finished her work and I went home and I put her harness in a pillow case in the washing machine no problems there.
The harness was clean and tidy and ready for use the next day.
I sold it as I perchased a leather one that was a donkey set.
The only harness I would not buy at the time was one made of indian leather as it would fit a shetland time you finished it would fit a shire.

Good to know!! The pieces(and they were odd pieces I used for training) would stretch out about 15% every time they got wet. That's why I bought biothane for my synthetic harness.

nylon harness

the nylon harness I had was a breast collar set that was over 24 odd years ago and I broke my flea bitten gray snowy in to harness.
And I used it for 2 years and got a lot of use out of it all the buckles were brass and the rein terrets to.
