" Western Pleasure Saddle set"

This is a Brown Stain with lots of bling.  Silver plates and stirrups from RioRondo.

The model here is a Breyer Man O War.  He is smaller than a classic.  I used him for a model for fitting the set.

A nice showy breast collar that shows off the chest.

This set is for a CM Man O War. 

The stirrups are just right for this little guy.

My stirrups are set at the horses elbows. But they can be lengthened if need be.

 I like the show bridles clean and neat.  This bit is from RioRondo, the reins are floss.  Buckels I made from  conchos.  For the curb strap I used 1/16 dark brown leather lace.

This model has a pretty head.

The hand tooling I did here is a swirl around the five petal flower.  This set is going to Australia,  Danielle is the proud owner.  I hope she'll send pics of it on the CM Man O War.
