Libby's Launch Easy-Wash Driving Harness

Webbing specialist Libbys is moving into the driving world with the launch of a budget-priced, single harness which has all the benefits of the company 's now-famous riding tack.

The harness, which can be machine-washed on a standard cycle, includes soft neoprene at body contact points. It will be made to measure, but with each one widely adjustable.

"I started designing the harness just before the Foot and Mouth outbreak, which meant it went on hold," said Libby Virgoe, who runs the Plymouth-based company. "A lot of time has been spent sourcing supplies of the special soft weave web I needed and the easily-washable neoprene which I have used in areas such as breeching, chest collar and dock."

It is available in 15 colours, with the basic harness retailing at about £200, "The harness is, really, made to measure," says Libby. "We will be supplying a special measurement sheet with each order to get the fit right, even though every set will still have even more adjustment included."

The webbing used is 1½ times stronger than traditional leather and options include quick release trace snaps. More details are available and orders can be placed by calling 01752 255555 or visiting the Libbys website at
