That said nothing wrong with that kind of harness with it I want to get across is a coarser type of harness that a work harness (sorry that I can not all the names of the harness in English) is an excellent harness for a beginner, first as buying to a specific harness to drive finely so you are pretty locked into this.
But buy you a harness that can be used for everything you can for example harrowing paddock pull home timer and so much more.
What I mean is a handsome all-purpose harness provides so many more opportunities to discover how fun it is to work with your horse and what great benefits you can have with a harness and horse.

P.s I also want to apologize for my poor English.
Best regards to you all. Lorden
your English is good Lorden,I have no problem understanding you

I have a harness that's black and the reins are actually half black (part that attaches to the bridle) and the second half is neutral brown. They're all nice quality too.

Well certainly there are black quality rein that do not stain, but I prefer the reins of braided hemp they are rough and good for agricultural work.
I also have fine rein when I drive the cart, and they are braided black leather rein that will not slip.

Lorden, could you please post a close-up picture of those braided hemp lines?

I have some braided leather lines that I have really grown to like. My hands are quite damaged, and I need all the help I can get with grip.
