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!
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.
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 :-)
