Some styles of Shanahan Harness feature our cavesson type bridles. These bridles have more of a coach style look with padded crowns cut away to fit around the ears and padded nosebands to allow for additional control without inhibiting performance. Shanahan bridles are a comfort no horse should be without.

Our scotch tops have a distinctive profile and are built in such a way that they hold their shape year after year and do not flop back and forth while the horse is moving.

Quilted, curved, or Chicago style backpads add both pizazz and functionality to the overall design and appeal of Shanahan harness.

Breechings made with padding, stuffed cruppers, kidney drops, and optional tuck-in tug carriers complete the look of our harnesses while adding to the comfort level of the horse.
