Let's Talk Bits!

Let me preface this post with this thought. A bit is only as good as the hands that use it.

Harnesses

I love all my harnesses. I currently have 3. Here is a blog about them!

Collars, Line of Draft and Balance of Draft

Whew! This is going to be a meaty blog post and one that has taken me quite a while to think about and start.

Hyperbike Quick Hitch

I called the boys at the harness shop and asked them to make me an attachment that had a slot on one end and a quick release shackle on the other.

Measuring, measuring, measuring!

Ensuring a good harness fit really does rely on good measurements.

Harness Adjustments

If you drive horses you are all too familiar with harness adjustments. And the fact that it is a constant thing!

Pairing Harnesses and Vehicles

I get a lot of questions from people wondering if this type of harness will work with this type of vehicle.

This post shows how I made two single harnesses into a pairs harness.

Driving My Team - Part Three

I share more about my team lines in this blog and how to harness a pair using breast collars.

Team Driving Lines

This blog is all about how to set up driving lines for a pair.

Surprise, Surprise!

I am asked many questions about harnesses and carts every day. One of the most popular questions is "What is your favorite harness?"
