List of Harnesses.
Harnesses and attachments that can be used on animals.
A bridle is a piece of equipment that a horse wears on its face. A bridle is usually made from leather, and is held on by buckles. The metal part of the bridle that goes in the horses's mouth is called the bit, and the long straps connected to the bit are called reins.
The combination of bridle, bit and reins is used to direct the horse, so you can make it go in the direction you want it to when you are riding or driving it.
A collar is a thin strip, usually made of leather, that is worn around the neck. Some collars are made of chain. Pet dogs and some cats usually wear collars all the time as somewhere to attach a nametag and registration disc. Dog collars usually have a loop on them that you can clip a lead to, so you can take your dog for a walk. Cat collars also have the loop, but cats are a lot harder to walk!
A horseshoe is a piece of steel that has been nailed to the bottom of a horse's hoof to protect it from being worn down. Horseshoes can also be made from aluminium, rubber, plastic or other metals. A horses hoof is just like a person's toenail, and the horse cannot feel the nails going through it. A person who fits horseshoes to a horse's hoof is called a farrier.
A whip is usually made from a short stick with a thin strip of leather at the end, although some whips are just made from a flexible rod.
Whips are usually used for training animals, as an extension of your arm. Whips can be cracked with a loud noise, which will scare an animal and make them change direction.
