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

I will do that, it does look to be in good nick just dirty. I'll have a look for a makers mark while I'm cleaning it.

It's garbage. Just ship it to me and rid yourself of it.

I was told today that this harness is full size...

Can anyone please tell me how to measure it to find out what size horse it would fit?

Measure the turnback strap that goes from the saddle to the crupper, and should have the breeching attached to it. I will get you a cob measurement, and you can compare.

The harness I have here is fitted for my 14hh cob, and it is 74 cm from the saddle to the buckle of the crupper. There is at least 15 cm of adjustment, which would be 7.5 cm more length in the turnback, since the turnback strap is doubled.

Hope this helps.

I've never seen a breeching strap used like that before! O.o. good mini!
