As if you had the proper equipment it wouldn't be that
Difficult to make.
Can anyone find a picture of a pony cart that actually
Labels the parts? I couldn't find one, lol.
well I have lots of pictures here I think makeing a harness is impractable and would be a lot of hard work.
Let me guide you through what the harness parts are starting from the bridle brow band face drop (ornament) rosetties head peace blinkers noseband and a straight bar bit ie liverpool you can cut a corner if you use your normal bridle and race blinkers then you have the colla full colla hames hame straps tugs and fits over the horses head this colla is ok if your veichle has no swingle tree a bar were the traces are attached a brest colla has a neck strap to both collars connect to the traces then you have the pad driveing saddle the saddle has a bearing rein hook 2 ring terrets for the reins to pass through also the colla has rings on it to.
You have the back band the tugs are leather loops were the shafts go through and the belly band connects to the back band and goes through the leather loop on the girth. And you can also have a faulse martingale with an ornament on it mine is a brass horse and also imbossed on the rosetties.
Then you have the girth for the pad saddle then you have a back band then the crupper which goes round the horses tail then the loin strap then the breeching which acts as your brake when the horse goes down hill then you have the briching straps that buckle round the shafts. I hope this helps if you need pictures ill be happy to supply them.
