I want to hook my little guy up to my cart, but I haven't hooked a harness up in ages! I have done all kinds of research and read all kinds of stuff, and I am sure I know how to hook him up, but I can't find any close up pictures to make sure I am putting all the straps onto the shafts correctly. I just am not sure exactly how to wrap the straps around the shafts. I just have a basic harness and an easy entry cart. So, if you have any close up pictures of mostly the sides of the harness hooked up to the cart, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!

I never did get around to taking new pictures for the mistakes I made with this page, but I did make a website specifically for your question. There are some definate errors, but nothing I did was unsafe.
Someday, when I actually drive my boy again, I'll get around to fixing them...

I don't want to be critical Nathan, but some of what you said is unsafe.
The tugs (stirrups) should be in front of the tug stops, and the breeching straps should be attached in front of the footman loops as described in the previous instructions. Both of these serve to keep the cart from running into the horse's rear end, especially if you go down a hill. Attaching the breeching straps to the harness saddle serves no purpose. It's nice that some of you have taken the time to make this information available, but if your going to do it, make sure you do it right. Someone could get hurt!
