Harnessing Work Horses

Harnessing Work Horses
Our price:
Horse logger and farmer from Franklinville, New York, Brandt Ainsworth shares his knowledge of harnessing, collaring, bridling, and grooming a work horse. Using as models ten beautiful, and hardworking draft horses - Percheron, Belgian, Brabant, and Spotted Draft - Brandt demonstrates a variety of harness, including martingale (bellybacker) harness, sidestrap (sidebacker) harness, D-ring harness, Y-back harness, pulling harness, plow harness, and logging harness. He also discusses bits, bridles, collars, pads, lines, eveners, and neck yokes.

From this video you will learn to select the style of harness and collar to best fit your needs, the kind of harness material that will work best for you, how to fit and fine tune your harness to keep your horses healthy and comfortable, and how groom a horse before harnessing. Shot at Donnie Middaugh's picturesque farm in Belfast, New York, this video makes a wonderful learning tool and reference for the novice or the seasoned horseman. 1 hour 48 minute DVD
