    I just got given a harness...

    Hi all,
    I was given this harness today & I know nothing about them.

    I was wondering if someone could tell me anything about it based on these photos? It came in this ancient old box too.









    Cheers

    The bottom 2 photos are upside down, I've tried to fix them to no avail.

    It looks like a quick hitch, the shaftes in the cart would go through those leather loops, and the reins go through the loops at the top.

    Looks like you have bridle with blinkers, not to sure about any of the other straps but assuming there would be a cropper and breastplate in there somewhere.

    Can't say anything about brand or anything like that, my limited knowledge comes from working with Stbs :)

    You've got breeching. It's the longish strap below the harness saddle in the first picture. I see holdbacks and the hip straps

    Please don't use that photo of the mini as a guide to hitch your horse. It is not hitched correctly.

    It looks pretty nice! Clean it up and oil it, make sure it doesn't have any cracks or worn areas, especially on the traces and girth. All the pieces seem to be there! Glad you got it!

    If there is a maker's mark, it is usually a stamp on the ends of the pieces.

    The mini may not be hitched right (I've never hitched a horse, so I wouldn't know xD) But he's awfully cute :>
