It has never been on a horse (yet!!) and is still new. Photos really cannot do it justice, as it is eye popping gorgeous and made to specifically catch light. The design is one of a kind and the workmanship is at the top of the scale. It is also made to adjust to various sizes of horse with rings under the edges. It is tasteful and eye catching! The artist has been doing this for some 40 years and some of the costumes made by her have been passed from one generation to the next because they are so wonderful and well made. She created the bridle and attached the beads onto it individually. The buckle on the headstall is hidden under the poll covering. There are many special features that she has put in that have resulted from her own experiences when competing in costume classes.
