Occasionally, though, I get an order for a piece of tack I know nothing about. This was the case in 2004 when Sandy asked me to make her a Swiss ski-joring harness. Luckily, I had exactly the right reference book sitting on my shelf. You wouldn't know it from the generic looking cover, but A World of Horses is the first book I go to when researching non US based performance events.It has a short but informative and picture filled chapter on ski-joring.
Using this book and some pictures provided by Sandy, I was able to sketch out a rough plan of what I wanted to make.I scanned my drawing and emailed it to Sandy for input. In the end I made all the tack and harness parts including the piece the handler hangs onto.
So, if you've got an idea for an unconventional set-up and you need some tack to make it work... Well, here's a tack maker who just might be able to help!
