After a thorough cleaning and oiling the leather,
I drilled small holes on each side of the top.
I did this because the buckle was missing and I needed a way to hold the harness closed.
I ran a heavy gauge wire through the small holes on each side and twisted it together to close the harness and began decorating it with faux greenery and a burlap ribbon bow.
The horseshoes are probably my favorite part.
My neighbor is a farrier and he was kind enough to bring me a dozen old horseshoes.
They also needed a good cleaning and I sprayed them with a clear matte sealer.
The horseshoes are wired together and through the small holes I drilled in the harness.
I'm also thinking that it would be a great focal point for a rustic winter wedding.
What do you think?
Just add small signs with the name of the bride and the groom to each horseshoe?
