Preventing Wrecks

Preventing WrecksLearn how to prevent common wrecks with horses in harness from a respected master horseman. This DVD presents essential advice regarding harness, equipment, knowledge, and skill.

One of the things I’ve learned over time is that the truly great teamsters rarely — if ever — have upset horses, close calls, mishaps or wrecks, while the less meticulous horsemen often do. The master horsemen follow a set of safety rules and pay incredible attention to detail, which keeps them and their horses safe.” –Doc
