Harness: How to Put on a Harness
Horseback riding is becoming more and more popular and intelligent. And this is no coincidence. Horseback riding helps combat stress, relieve accumulated fatigue, and improve health and fitness. Putting a harness on a horse is one of the first steps you need to master if you decide to get better to know these beautiful animals and go horseback riding. We describe in this article how you put on a harness.
Check the harness. The racing belt consists of a chin, forearm, forehead and cheek belts, a snail and a joke. Check the harness carefully. Make sure it is not damaged.
Place the harness on your left arm to place the front strap at the elbow. Release the leash by loosening Step 3
Open the booth door. Make sure your horse is calm and not aggressive. Approach the horse from the side of the left foot in front. Pat the animal on the neck and call it by name. Put the leash around the horse’s neck without removing the harness from the left hand—the forehead band.
Attach the horse’s head by placing your right hand under the muzzle and resting your palm on the animal’s nose. It should note that you must fix the horse’s head until the moment when you thread the animal’s ears between the front and forehead belts.
Lift the headband with your left hand to press the cheekbones onto the animal’s nose with the palm and fingers of your right hand.
Hold the carriage in the open palm and insert it into the horse’s mouth with his free left hand. It is strictly forbidden to push the transfer into the horse’s mouth with your fingers.
Pull the harness up to move the crossbar to the corners of the animal’s mouth. Place the horse’s ears between the arm and front straps.
Release the clasp of the horse under the forehead of the leash. Attach the chin strap to pass between it and the animal’s neck so that a good fist can pass. It should note that losing a chin strap can cause the harness to slip, and too tight it interferes with the animal’s breathing and disruption.
Ensure that the harness and leash are not twisted and that the transfer fits snugly into the corners of the horse’s mouth without creating a skin fold.
