Did you ever wonder where trick harness comes from for the trick horses you see? I used to wonder until we were asked to make trick harness for both full size and miniature horses. The answer is pretty simple: Some trick harness comes from Chimacum Tack. Our harness maker can make anything we’ve needed, and trick harness is no exception.
These specialty harnesses are made one at a time, just for you to your specifications. We use either betathane or bioplastic, and can offer wonderful color combinations. We know how to custom fit equines from 30″ tall to 18 hands.
The harness shown here was made for Jan Sharp and her beautiful horses TS Black Tie Affair and Darker N Bey.
About our Trick Harness Models:
TS Black Tie Affair is a half Arabian stallion is a many times Pinto World Champion and World Show Hi Point Champion, in all disciplines from halter to dressage. He has also an Arabian Ambassador Award winner for his work with children. He is also a highly-schooled trick horse. Black Tie is the model for a Breyer model horse and was a guest horse at BreyerFest in 2011. In 2016, Black Tie returned to BreyerFest to share his official retirement ceremony with his fans. Jan tells me that Darker N Bey aka Darken is a Arabian/Pinto Gelding. He is also Arabian Ambassador Award winner, US Arabian Sport Horse National Top 10 Dressage winner, Pinto Reserve World Champion, and has won multiple championships in dressage.
His book “Darken: The Scaredy Cat Champion” (Book 1 in a series allows readers to follow his journey of overcoming physical, medical, and behavioral challenges from birth to age 5. Book 2 “Darken and Friends” is soon to be released. This second book follows Darken’s life from age six to eleven, and includes stories about some of his stablemates.) His likeness, wearing this trick horse harness, is in coloring book “I Dream Horses” by Linda Dalziel. It is already a #1 coloring book on Amazon and was only recently released!
