The Marafun Harness is the hottest, newest harness made by Countryside!
Marafun harness is the updated version of the original Chimacum Tack traditional mini/small pony harness. It is made with the same care and attention to detail it has been made with since 1993 – only now with crazy fun colors! American made using traditional skills and contemporary materials.
PLEASE NOTE THIS PICTURE IS OF A TRADITIONAL PLEASURE ON A CUTE DONKEY NAMED BURRITO. IT IS NOT QUITE A MARAFUN HARNESS . WE NEED PICTURES OF MARAFUN HARNESS ON YOUR DONKEYS. PICTURES ARE OUT THERE! THE SUPERFUN HARNESS IS MADE FOR MINI DONKEYS AND MULES TOO! HAVE A PEEK AT IT HERE
Made to fit Mini Donkeys and Mules:
This particular size Marafun harness is designed just for mini donkeys/mules and small donkeys. We spent at least a year in the early 1990’s developing harness that fits Mini Donkeys and Mini Mules. this harness is made with the same sizing. Guaranteed to fit and be comfortable for your mini donkey/mule or small (pony size) donkey. This size has fit every mini donkey/mule we’ve put it on since 1994. There is a picture of our favorite mini donkey model – Burrito – in the traditional version of the Marafun harness just so you can see how nicely it looks and fits. We can’t wait to have pictures of your mini donkeys and mini mules in their snazzy new Marafun harnesses.
The bridle is designed for long ears who have longer cheeks, wider browbands and more narrow noses than horses. The breastcollar is sized for skinny donkey chests. The harness also comes with three separate sizes of bellybands because we know full well that donkey and mule tummies change. If you happen to order your mini/donkey, small donkey Marafun harness under the other Marafun product, no worries, it’s the same harness made to fit your animal.
Measurements are not required from you to purchase this size harness because the standard mini/donkey small donkey harness sizing we have used for 22 years FITS EVERY SINGLE MINI DONKEY/MULE we’ve ever put it on with the exception of one bridle in 1995 which we hard to replace the cheeks on – although I no longer remember why. IF THE HARNESS ARRIVES AND SOME PART OF IT DOESN’T FIT WE WILL REPLACE IT. We have always had the same policy and it won’t change.
Countryside and I, along with several customers, spent months getting the proportions and the materials just right. Almost no one made VSE harness then; almost no one had experience in fitting Minis. Just getting the fit exactly right was a chore! We redesigned, refit and refined until everyone was happy. We did the same for the mini donkey/mule harness. The result has been that Chimacum Tack VSE (mini-Small Pony) harness truly fits! It has fit consistently well, right out of the box, for more than 22 years. As all of our other harness, the Marafun is guaranteed to fit and perform.
The Marafun harness brings tradition into the 21st century. The flash is up to you: Make any part of this harness any color you’d like (with the exception of a few wide places that will need to be black due to materials used). Go wild! Have fun dreaming up what you want, and then feel free to just call or e-mail us to provide the details.
