About Mark Porter
Mark Porter of Asterisk Horse-collars & Harness, is a long-straw collar-maker and harness-maker of 38 years’ experience. He manufactures and repairs all types of collars and harness on the premises in the traditional Australian style. Harness manufactured in the past ranges from Pony through to Dray-size single-horse harness, and Pair/Team harness, collars and harness for donkeys, both collars and harness for camels (including riding and pack-saddles) and even a miniature long-straw collar for a working goat. Another unusual job undertaken in the past was the extremely heavy Cee-spring suspension strapping for the Diamond Jubilee State Coach, a gift from Australia. In addition to making and repairing harness, Mark also does general saddlery repair work.
