The breeching is the part of the horse's harness that goes around the horse's hindquarters and underneath its tail. This breeching has two sets of chains. One end of the strap is held together by string. The breeching is designed to help the horse control forward movement if the horse is pulling a vehicle.

Dimensions : L 124.9 x W 6.1

Did you know?
Breeching is almost exclusively used for horses. Other draft animals, such as oxen, use yokes, which are pulled back by the driver.
