    Spinning the top is often dicey, especially with 8, especially at speed.

    FWIW with drafts we usually say, starting from the front, lead/point/swing/wheel team.

    Yes, same thing. If overused/abused, it's not a good thing. My vet and my equine chiro are OK with it, they're both pretty opinionated dressage riders, so I have no doubt I'd get a whuppin' if they...

    I don't know about any harness but there was a TON of tack, or so my friend who went said. Nice western saddles and head stalls by the boat load, a lot of the saddles went for $200ish.
