Question on neck yoke
Posted by Gary Rose at 2015-08-28 21:32:42
When I was reading the latest RH I saw the picture on page 33. I from western Nebraska this type neck yoke are not used, what are the purpose of this style. Would not this style add extra weight to the horses neck?

Why are you so worried about weight onthe neck? If you can pick up the tongue, it isn't too much weight for a horse to pack.

You do not need the neck yoke for four. A single one works unless you are trying to back up a semi.

I'd like one each for three and four abreast to hold back loads coming down my dugway.

Thanks for the education, I have seen many six abreast hitches but they always had only a neck yoke on the tongue team

The only reason for it is helping hold loads back Gary rose.
I use three and four abreast quite a bit.

What part of western Nebraska?
