Handmade Horse Harnesses

Brad Funk runs a harness making business called The Livery Stable. He has a herd of Percheron Heavy Horses. One of his horse drawn vehicles is a Chore Sled. It is equipped with a winch for working with round bales. Since he works daily with horses, he understands what it takes to make a harness product from a practical standpoint. All of his harness making equipment is manually operated. In fact, he runs a leather creasing machine that was originally patented in 1867. He has tried electric machines and tools, but prefers manual equipment because it is more precise. He makes harness materials for sale and also repairs all types of harnesses.
