Racing-type quick hitch harness - any reason NOT to use one for jogging at home?
The title basically sums up my question. Is there any reason one should NOT use a racing type quick hitch harness and jog cart for working horses at home? Different pressure points, direction of pull, etc? I tested it on my broke to death golden oldie yesterday, and it seemed to do ok.
Would there be a way to convert the clip-in quick hitch to being tied in, like "normal" work harness/carts? I've got an old Pennsbury wood classic jogger that one of the previous owners (very obviously) cut the shafts down and attached the quickhitch couplers to. The shafts are shorter, so I couldn't pull the cart up to where a pleasure cart would usually be, but maybe add straps to the coupler on the cart, to snap to a breastplate?
Let me know what you think. I just want to make sure what I'm using will be safe, and comfortable for the horses. Thanks!
I just wanna trot big!
