Dumb Jockey — Bowman Leather


You may not know what a dumb jockey is.  Neither did Goran and Gerda, so they checked.  This is the information they found.

A dumb jockey is a harness for training horses that mimics the feel of having a rider on the horse’s back.  Used in early training to accustom the horse to the feel of a rider allowing for weight on the saddle area and resistance similar to a rider using reins.  Typically these were used more in Europe than in the USA.

The Bowman Leather Dumb Jockey is hand made of beautiful quality materials in a small shop by a master craftsman using traditional methods and only the best materials available.  All of the Bowman training equipment features the double bar buckle for extra strength.
