Here it is: Chimacum Tack’s lovely draft-style Parade Harness specially made just for your Mini Donkey/Mule or Small Donkey! We have offered these harnesses for the last 20 years and all of them are still used and well loved. No two are just alike. This harness is every bit as special as it’s bigger relatives. While this harness is made like the traditional parade harness for full size horses and drafts, it is designed and appointed specifically for the proportions of Mini donkeys and mules.
This particular size of our parade harness is sized 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 parade harness is made with the same sizing. Guaranteed to fit and be comfortable for your mini donkey/mule or small (small pony size) donkey. This size has fit every mini donkey/mule we’ve put it on since 1994. We can’t wait to have pictures of your mini donkeys and mini mules in their beautiful new parade 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 Parade harness under the other Mini Parade Harness product, no worries, it’s the same harness made to fit your animal
Parade Harness Features:
- Bridles convertible from side check or no check at all.

Please provide measurements for the collar size. We make these harnesses one at a time, just for you. We guarantee our harness to fit but these are made just for you and not returnable.
Measuring is important even for the donkey and mule harnesses. To process your order we need 3 measurements:
COM to COM : Measure from the corner of the mouth on one side, over the top of the head (behind the ears) to the corner of the mouth on the other side. When doing this measurement make sure the tape is right behind the animal’s ears. Start at the corner of the mouth on one side and end at the exact corner of the mouth on the other side. If you are between two measurements, choose the smaller of the two.
Girth : When measuring the girth make sure you have the tape laying where the saddle will sit, on the flattest part of the back, NOT forward on the withers, or following the girth groove. If you are between measurements, choose the larger of the two.
Height : Measure using a straight ruler or level or something else flat and straight across the donkey’s back extending out to the side so that a straight line can me measured to the ground from that point. Then measure from that point straight down to the ground. You can use a measuring tape to measure the height of the horse. Hold a flat edge, a ruler or a piece of cardboard, on the top of the withers to help you make an accurate measurement.
Mindy Schroder will be contacting you either through email or phone after you place your harness order, to confirm the measurements you gave.
**Also 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!
Please allow three weeks plus shipping time. We won’t make this harness without talking with you about specifically how you’d like it to be. Feel free to just call Janie to order. She answers from 8am to 8pm pacific time every day.
