Driving Harness

I'm looking for a harness to teach my boy to drive. I have had a couple of goes pulling a tyre from the surcingle. Obviously totally in appropriate but I wanted to see if he would be calm with something trailing behind. Indications see very positive. After 5 minutes leading him I was then able to pull with long reins. So I need to find a harness, but there are so many to choose from.

So what would you recommend. I will eventually hope to drive in cart, but initially I want to pull tyres and chain harrows. So what do you recommend. I want a harness that wont pull apart. So not cheapy cheap, but something that I can uses for harrowing/pulling tyres and small logs.

Should add hes 14hh.

My little babes

If you want to harrow get a good synthetic set. Libby's or Tedman/Tedex.
Rules are for the guidance of wise men and for the strict adherence of fools.
