collar with plain draughts is not improper in a runabout which is smartly turned out for town use.
The single bearing rein is used with this harness, which comes properly under the " semi-sporting " head.
THE SINGLE BROUGHAM HARNESS (PLATE XXVIII).
We notice first the Buxton bit in the bridle. This bit indicates immediately the dressy character of the harness. We find a neat, fair-sized pad with French loop tugs, so made that the shaft is kept close to the horse's side.
The collar is shaped and the Names have plain draught eyes.
The standing martingale is the correct one. It will be seen that this harness is of lined leather throughout, and the buckles, etc., are of a nonsporting shape.
The breeching, which is of graceful construction, is supported by two straps which meet about two thirds of the way up, but do not form a wide expanse on which to put a crest or monogram. The bridle front is one of the most refined in style, and is in keeping with the full bearing rein, etc. Either square or horseshoe blinkers are proper.
