Pending final approval from the new owner, one of the harnesses is finally done.I have a love/hate relationship with harnesses. They're not my favorite thing to make, but I always kind of fall in love with them once they're finished. One of these days I'll make myself one to keep.
Giselle/Stage Mom/Valentine makes a lovely harness horse, but that forelock poses real fitting challenges in regards to the blinker stays and browband. Customizers take note--this is a good area to "fix" if you're working on this particular mold.
Since this harness is destined to be used with a sleigh rather than a cart, it comes with sleigh bells! These can be positioned either in front of or just behind the surcingle.
So--that's one down, one to go. With any luck, I'll be back to saddles by the weekend!
