Flaming Star Driving Harness
The saddle has been completely re-designed to provide the same spinal clearance as has existed on
the Flaming Star pack saddles since 1992.
All felt padding is ¼” thick and covered with fabric in your choice of color. This prevents the felt
from picking up debris which keeps the harness cleaner and is more comfortable for the llama. Fabric choices range from 1000d nylon in red, hunter green, royal blue, teal, navy, or black to 420d nylon in red, royal blue, hunter green, purple, and black. The 420d pack
cloth is smooth and shiny, the 1000d nylon is textured and more durable.
The breast strap is padded with 1/4” felt. The neck strap has a sliding pad for cushion over the spine. The neck strap has a side release buckle and is adjustable with a slider. Traces are detachable from the breast strap for ease in changing lengths and laundering the breast strap. The breeching and belly strap are also machine washable using a mild detergent. Place in a pillow case and close with a rubber band to protect the hardware. Immediately remove after washing and hang up to air dry. Do not use bleach. Washing the saddle is not recommended as there are metal plates inside that stabilize the terrets. The cinch is fastened at the left side with a 1” nickel-plated steel buckle (with tongue). There is a sliding adjustment on the right side. Both ends of the cinch attach to the saddle with a heavy duty spring clip. This allows a longer or shorter cinch strap to be easily changed out. The belly strap slides on the cinch for easy centering. The belly strap features four D-rings (one on each side for attaching the hold down straps, and one in front and rear for team driving).
