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
