Hartford 20-bell rump strap

This unusual hip strap design is an adaptation of an old strap from Hartford, Connecticut USA. It is about 24" long and 3" wide and is similar in design to a traditional rump strap, except many small bells are on this strap rather than a few large ones. This style appeals to saddle-horse owners as well as carriage drivers.

Each Hartford strap has a total of 20 smaller bells -- as many bells as some full body straps have. The bells have a cheerful, classic "sleigh bell" sound that carries well. The strap easily fits a wide variety of equines, from pony to draft. It is also attractive enough to hang on a door or wall for display. 525
