    I've had good luck with Beta Granite material. Its basically the same as Biothane, but has a dull matte finish so it loks more like leather. I jave some nice Amish made beta harness with bio trim, and it looks like leather with patent trim. For cold weather use its great, as it won't get stiff in the cold. A friend of mine is a logger, and he uses nothing else for just that reason. And it is so easy to care for, just wash it off, hand it up to dry and you're good to go the next time. Just be sure to get stainless hardware so you don't have to polish brass. We use it for all our training and trail driving, then get out the good leather/brass for the shows. You should be able to get a good set for about 500.00. I've got a catalog from an Amish harness maker in IA whom I've dealt with and he has them for about 350.00.

    I am all about leather. I just bought an amish made one for about 1000.00 and my show harness I bought used but it originally sold for about 4000.00
