I think that it would work then. For the time being, I am wanting it to start training a draft cross filly. She is a little over 2 years old now, and I am hoping to start her on light carts by summer. I want to switch to a hames and collar down the road. If this one will not make the change, either to structural or because of quality, I will get another. My filly is growing and likely to grow for another couple of years, so this will probably work until I will buy her a harness that fits her finished product. Thank you for the advice of what to look for. I will definitely keep an eye out for any cracking and will be extra vigilant with cleaning and care.
