of wheelers, and not through the

No rings on coupling reins.
Mountings of coach and harness and the buttons on servants' liveries should be of the same metal.

Wheelers' inside traces shorter than outside traces, unless the inside roller bolt is enlarged to give the same result.
Lead traces straight or lapped, not crossed.
Eyes on end of hames through which the kidney links pass.
Plain kidney links. No kidneylink rings on leaders.
Solid draught eyes on Names.
Clip inside of trace leather, and showing rivet heads only.
Full-bearing reins with bit and bridoon. Buxton bits preferred.
Single point strap to tug buckle.
Metal or ribbon fronts to bridles. If ribbon, the colour should match the livery waistcoat.
The crest or monogram should be on the rosettes, face pieces, winkers, pads, and martingale flaps.
