    Default Stallion keeps breaking harness - at our wits end

    My dad's stallion keeps breaking the harness when he is working. It is very frustrating - he also keeps getting stuck in the tree branches. We don't know what to do - any tips

    Here is a pic of the harness - maybe we are doing something wrong.

    Wait another month or so and he'll drop his antlers. That should keep him from snagging the harness and breaking it

    Try biothane or granite harness instead of leather. The moose, being a vegetarian, dislikes using leather products.
