The Huntseat Bridle from "HE double hockey sticks"

I've been working on this bridle for two solid weeks.  Again I had a lot of problems with the crownpiece.  I was entirely finished with the bridle two days ago, but the throatlatch broke so I had to redo the crownpiece.  This one only took about 15 crown pieces so thats a step forward! LOL!

Morrocan Embroidered Costume

SO.. while I'm sharing my reference photos, I might as well share this one. I have no idea if I'll ever be able to make this set in miniature.  These photos were taken by me, at the Kentucky Horse Supply here in Louisville, KY.  I  know that the owner showed arabians for a while but I do not know the full story behind this beautiful tack.  Those folks that work there are the greatest because I often go in there, camera in hand and shoot photos for my reference files.  I also have photos of a parade rigt that I'll post some other time.  If you use these files, please credit me.

Akhal Teke Tack Reference Photos

These are my Personal Photos from the Akhal Teke Symposium in 2006.  I took quite a few for my personal reference.  Of course, I've not ever made any miniature teke tack but dang it I will!  The Necklaces are called Ajas and they are to ward off evil spirits.  They were also made and given to a horse that had been brave in many battles.  And they're just beautiful :-)
