Details

Pleasure driving harness in the Amish communities is used to make Saturday shopping trips to town and driving the families to weekly church services and gatherings, something you would wear dress shoes for. So, a fancy “Dress Shoe Harness for the horse”. The plain driving harnesses are made with heavier material for working horses. They are not as fancy, but they are tough like work boots. So, they are the "Work Boot Harness". The Amish families depend on horses and harness as others depend on modern-day pickup trucks. Pleasure driving harnesses are also lighter and more comfortable for the horse(s).

Harness ships directly from an Amish shop in Indiana. Allow 3-4 weeks plus an extra few days for shipping. Custom options may take 4-6 weeks.

Quality Drives Price

You will find cheaper mass-produced “Economy harnesses” made of thinner imported plastic-coated webbings and imported leather equipped with cheaper hardware. Many are quickly assembled with loose stitching. An economy harness may just be fine for an occasional hitch-up however, serious equine owners dependent on horses for daily use know a quality-made harness is what you pay for. Our Amish shop still makes harnesses the old-fashioned way one harness at a time to last a lifetime. They use premium Hermann Oak Leather or original USA BioThane® webbing.

The BioThane® company spends countless testing hours to evaluate adhesion to the hand-selected USA-made polyester webbing. Imported plastic-coated webbings have high failure rates under tension and become brittle in cold weather. Thickness and grades of harness materials are selected based on the expectations that the harnesses will be used by other Amish families for working horses day in and day out with lighter duty harnesses designed for weekend pleasure trips to shopping and church.

Extra time is taken to handcraft each harness with rounded strap ends and extra stitching that is pulled tight down into the surface in order to reduce wear points at the stitching. See the standard sewing design picture. The shop uses the highest quality stainless or solid brass hardware that can be sourced including a quality USA-made stainless bit.

Each harness is then personally inspected by the owner and assigned a serial number before it is shipped. You will find that the attention to detail also provides a more comfortable fitting harness.

BioThane® was developed in 1977, by the Polyurethane Polymer division of BF Goodrich to fill the demand for a more flexible, high-performance horse racing harness product. The engineers worked closely with horse owners to create a line of synthetic belting for the tack and harness industry that would be far superior to leather.

BioThane® rinses clean in seconds. Since its inception BioThane® has become the choice of professional football leagues for helmet chin straps and pad strapping as well as other industrial applications including the US Military, the medical field using BioThane® strapping on operation tables and EMS ambulance because of its superior holding and cleaning capabilities. BioThane® verifies all the raw materials used in their products are carcinogen-free.

Horse harness made of BioThane® is preferred by the Amish because it’s waterproof, UV protected, will not mold or mildew, will not absorb odors, will not dry out or crack, frozen flexibility, and chemical resistant.

When people depend on horse harnesses as either a full-time occupation or for an occasional outing, they will know harnesses made with BioThane® webbing is low maintenance with no unwanted surprises even after years of service.

Supreme Leather Carriage Harness is made from USA Hermann Oak Leather

Since 1881 the Hermann Oak Leather Company has been supplying superb quality harness leather to American heritage harness makers. A true testament to the Amish way of only making only high-quality long-lasting products. Keep in mind Amish makes their harnesses for daily hard use so they must be made to withstand time under rigorous conditions in all seasons.
