Single harness.

A single harness is pretty straightforward. It uses a head collar and breastcollar to attach the horse to the cart, with a lead rope running to the centre of its back.

The single harness consists of two parts: the head collar and breastcollar. The head collar attaches around the horse’s nose, while the breastcollar wraps around their chest area just behind their front legs. This helps keep them walking in a straight line while they pull along with you on your ride!

You can put this on by attaching your lead rope (or halter) through both rings on each piece of equipment, which are usually located at either end or in between somewhere depending on what type you own (see below). This will allow your animal enough freedom so that he/she doesn’t feel too restricted while still being able to be guided where needed!

Side-check harness.

Equine harnesses are designed to be used in different situations, from light work horses to heavy pulling horses. One of the most common and versatile types of harness is the side-check harness.

This type of harness has been used for centuries, but it wasn’t until around the 19th century that they became popular in North America. Today, they’re still very common and can be found on farms all over the world. They have many benefits compared to other types of horse equipment:

  • They don’t put pressure on your horse’s chest or back so as not to cause injury when pulling heavy loads such as carts full of hay bales or large logs out in woodlands areas where there aren’t any roads (or highways).
  • They distribute weight evenly throughout their bodies which means they won’t get tired as quickly while working hard at tasks like plowing fields or hauling materials around construction sites where there aren’t any paved roads nearby – meaning fewer breaks required during long days spent outdoors doing manual labor!

Double harness.

A double harness is used for heavy pulling and can be used by Percheron and Clydesdale horses. It is also used by some smaller horses, but they must be very strong to do so. A double harness is not used for speed.

The two sets of reins are joined together with a chain or rope that goes around the horse’s neck. This makes it easier for one person to control the horse when pulling heavy loads or in rough terrain where it would be difficult to use just one set of reins alone.

There are different types of harnesses, and they are all effective in their own way.

There are many different types of horse harnesses, and each one is perfect for a certain purpose. The three main types you’ll encounter are:

  • T traces
  • Double bridles
  • Collars
