Hi

I was recently introduced to team driving (it is a BLAST) and the team was using two-single harness's, along with a team pole (between the horses.) These were not miniatures (actually drafts) but I was told that they are "all the same", as far as the hitching is concerned

Reins are set up differently and usually pairs do not use breeching. Team reins are set up very differently

You can use two singles. The only thing you will need to buy is a set of either Dutch Collars or Hame type collars to hold the team pole up. A set of team lines is a MUST. The lines are set so that the buckle in the middle (the lines look like a "V") faces the outside. The longer side of each line crosses and buckles to the team mates bit, so that when you are sitting up in the wagon the lines are "X"'d in front of you..that way when you steer left the one line will steer BOTH horses left. But I work all the teams in single type harness with Dutch Collars..show harness is traditional draft type team harness with Hame type collars. So no you really don't need to buy another set of harness, just a pair of collars and team lines.
