Marathon shafts and NON breakaway tugs?
DH ordered a set of marathon shafts for his "new" (used) 4 wheel carriage from its mfg. About the same time he ordered a new harness for horsey, with breakaway tugs, from of course a different company. Both companies said items would be shipped "in a couple of weeks". Well, that was well over a month ago (surprised?). The shafts arrived yesterday. But no word on when the harness will.
The harness he has does not have break away tugs. And someone is going to ask me which kind they are. And this is not my language. It is a Smucker's leather harness if that makes any difference or that helps. DH says the tugs will unbuckle to open up, "but not easily", so I guess he can get them on/off the marathon shafts when putting to (see, I do know that term :) )
But is it SAFE to do this until the new harness comes? He isn't doing hazards or anythig but then again $hit happens.
