No. The tensile strength comes from the polyester webbing inside.

How strong is the webbing?

We have three different standard webbings that are commonly used. See BioThane® coated webbing. If there is a particular strength you need, go to GET IN TOUCH and or call us.

Does synthetic hurt the animals?

Synthetics do not hurt any more than leather. It all comes down to how the product is designed. A poorly designed item can hurt an animal and you would barely know it until they develop sores.

Check for rub spots, if it's rubbing the horse you should ask someone if there is another solution, sometimes all it takes is some adjustment and you can avoid hurting your animal.

No animal should need to suffer because of an ill-fitting harness! Ask your sales rep to help you if something doesn't look right.

How do I clean the harness, bridles, halters etc.?

Warm water and soap usually work well. You also can dab with a small amount of rubbing alcohol.

What do you mean trim color?

Trim Color is actually a strap that is in any color that you select. If you didn’t select a color the strap would be black as the standard color.
