Here it is, our newest CT special harness. This harness is exactly as the name describes. A harness perfect for the various terrain one encounters on a trail drive! Steep hills, rough trails, mud, creek crossings, long sweaty drives. The Trail harness is the perfect choice for drives like this!
Not available anywhere else! Chimacum Tack’s own Mindy- PonyPrincess put this harness together using parts from the both the Comfy Fit and the Pleasure harness. She calls it the Trail Harness!
Mindy lives in rural Montana and takes full advantage of the extravagantly beautiful country around her. Here is what she says about the Trail Harness:
“When you are doing some rather intense trail driving, navigating boulders, steep inclines (and declines!) crossing water, and trotting for miles and miles up mountain logging roads, this harness is guaranteed to keep your mini (horse or donkey) or pony Comfy and Happy!”
~ Mindy Pony-Princess
The Trail harness combines the SuperFlex collar with Martingale, the ComfyFit saddle (treed or treeless), the Comfy Curve Girth, Trace Carriers, the Pleasure style back and hip straps and padded breeching. You will be confident that your mini or pony can tackle any terrain you come across. The Trail harness is durable, weatherproof, and will last for many years. Also included are standard ComfyFit shaft loops and combo traces.
DRIVING LINES ARE BROWN SOFT STRAP UNLESS ANOTHER COLOR IS SPECIFIED. BLACK YACHT ROPE DRIVING LINES ARE ANOTHER OPTION.
You have a choice between the Comfy Fit Bridle (with blinders) or the English bridle (for an Open Bridle option).
This harness comes in BLACK ONLY!!! You can choose colored back pads (which is what the vinyl option is above.)

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!
For instructions on how to measure your equine for the SuperFlex Collar visit think link. WHEN MEASURING FOR THE COLLAR, YOU MUST USE EITHER CARPENTER SQUARES OR A COLLAR MEASURING STICK OR TWO L SHAPED PIECES OF CARDBOARD. YOU MUST USE SOME KIND OF STRAIGHT EDGE TO MEASURE FOR A COLLAR. Collars are measured top to bottom inside the rim. It is necessary to measure a straight line thru the center of the horses neck to get the correct collar size.
