I'll need to buy a special leather puncher for that, right? I'd hate to do it wrong. I need to punch a hole in the breeching to make it shorter anyways.

Ok, I looked at Taffy's thread but now I'm even more confused xD I was told that my breeching should be attached to the small metal ring on the underside of my cart shafts, which I did. I cropped two of my pictures of the harness on two different miniatures for you to see where I attached it, and color coded it to make it easier to see. I'm sure I'll be embarressed when I see where it actually goes xD

Online though, its just saying 'attach breeching to shaft' and in a few of Taffy's pictures it looks like it might be some how wrapped around? I'm so confused!

Here are my pictures.

Blue is the shaft, red is the breeching, yellow is the ring that I attached it to on the cart shaft. That red circle is the hold back strap and as you can see it is HUGE for some reason. That is the piece that I often double over to make the breeching 'fit' better.

Here the same harness is on a bigger gelding.

Blue is the hold back strap, still huge, red is the ring on the cart shaft, yellow is where the breeching and holdback strap connect with a ring.

Ideally the breeching should be hitting right at the point of her butt, right?

Agh, harness fitting is maddening! XD

Hiya ill explane what and how the breeching ataches.
You have the back strap and the crupper then the loin strap feeds through to the breeching via the 2 forks in the loin strap so that's your hight adjustment.
Ok I will run you step by step. | |
Your shaft should have some ds that look like this [| |this is the top of the shaft. This is the bottom | | the breeching ds are on the bottom of the shaft as you look down from the top.
ok your breeching strap goes through the d and then comes round the shaft and the trace runs parralell with the shaft and the strap wrapps round the trace (trace flat against the shaft) and back through the breeching d and back to the breeching buckle the breeching ds are about 6-8-10 inchs from were the loin strap goes ferther along the shaft.
And adjusted so as to work as a brake on your ponys quaters.

I thought taffy showed how to wrap it and I am mistaken. It is hard to explain but you take the strap through the loop and wrap it a few times (depending on how much slack you need to remove) around the shaft in front of the loop and back under itself towards the buckle. I will see if I can find a photo.

This is only wrapped once because it has long shafts. Should give you an idea though.

I would say on both ponies the strap needs to be raised 4" or so.

I'll do that. I'm going to see if I can borrow some leather hole punches from someone, or buy my own.

They're not that expensive and every stable should have that on hand

I'm pretty sure my BO does, but you never know xD if not, would I get that at a hardware store or a tack store?
