It is packed with information about this harness.
The all-new MaraFun Harness is the newest, hottest harness made by Countryside! Designed specially for Mini Horses/Donkeys/Mules and Standard Donkeys/Small Ponies and guaranteed to fit!
The MaraFun harness, is the updated version of the original Chimacum Tack traditional mini/small pony harness. Made with a variety of synthetic materials, it is easy to use, comfortable for the animal, virtually indestructible. It is made with the same care and attention to detail it has been made with since 1993. American made using traditional skills and contemporary materials.
We worked closely with Countryside, and several customers, for 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 sizing. 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!
This harness comes in our colored straps. If you want a black harness of this style please go to the Pleasure Harness product!!
Available in Miniature Horse, Donkey, Mules and Small Pony sizes only!

Measuring For Your Harness
Please go to the Size Chart Page to watch a video showing how to measure.
We require measurements for EVERY HARNESS PURCHASE.
Our harnesses are guaranteed to fit. This means we need you to measure twice and order once. Or even better, measure three times and order once! We have a How To Measure Chart you can take to your horse to write down the measurements you get. We ask that you be as accurate as you can, without over thinking it or stressing about it. Mindy Schroder will be contacting you either through email or phone after you place your harness order, to confirm the measurements you gave. Here is a guide on to how to measure.
**We ask that you include the measurements for your harness in the Notes section of your order. After you click the Pay button, the next screen will have a place to write notes. That is the perfect place to give us any instructions about your harness as well!
