my nice harness is around 5000 dollars so to me 1000 dollars is inexpensive. you get what you pay for some of the cheaper harnesses do not have as much adjusting or the leather isn't as good or the stitching there's a lot that goes into something that makes it a different price range ,Bucklin traces or sewn in there a lot of things to really consider .

so would a nylon harness be a terrible choice?

I'm definitely not looking to show, that's for sure.

the nylon ones that I have seen in less you get 1 custom made do not fit very well and they just left the adjustments . my sister had 1 custom made so it was a little bit more expensive and I think it worked ok for messing around but she just pulled a sleigh ave few times a year so if you were really going to drive regularly I would not use nylon

Dang, I don't have $5000.00 in my draft teams harnesses. Of course I don't show so my harnesses aren't blinged to the max, but they aren't completely plain either.
I didn't even realize a single harness could go for that much.
