Daisy has a new harness from chimacum tack. This is their farm/work harness in pony size. I sent in measurements for it to be custom fitted. Unfortunately when it arrived, some parts were way to big. The girth was a good 6" too long, it hung below her heartgirth, and the britchen is too long. The gal at Chimacum tack offered to come out and help to get it to fit or I could send it back. I finally had a bit of time to try to adjust it.
Girth- There are two straps that come off of the saddle, I had orginally adjusted thrm to the smallest setting, but they still were too long. I ended up flipping the strap so thr conway could use thr adjustment holes for the top and bottom. This helped quite a bit.
I used this same technique to shorten thr rear hip strap and the breast collar tug.
Then I sewed the smallest girth ever...
Then I added a pad and boom! it fits!
I may diy the strap that goes between her legs from the collar, she is very narrow there and Im concerned about the thick strap rubbing the inside of her legs.
I'm so looking forward to using this harness, I hope Daisy is much more comfortable in the collar vs the Breastcollar style.
