The Officer's Mount by TR-Ranch The Officer's Mount by TR-Ranch
More of a tack show-off post than anything. I finally got my Trooper after waiting for what seemed like forever (every dealer was sold out) and I've been dying to get him under saddle as a roached-maned part draft cavalry mount (yes, I'm aware that his body type is better suited to the British cavalry and he's under American tack... shh.)

This set is a combination of a Breyer McClellan cavalry saddle set, a custom made 1:9 scale McClellan set purchased on eBay a while back, and my own personal work. Changes include:

:bulletblack: Bridle completely rebuilt, including Rio Rondo cavalry bit and cotton lead
:bulletblack: Added breastcollar and attachment rings
:bulletblack: Added bedroll, canteen, and tin cup
:bulletblack: Added "brass" fittings for straps for bedroll

It won a second place at Breyerfest a few years back on a Rachel Alexandra, for what it's worth.

Besides simple halters and bridles, no. I wish I had the talent for it, though.

What type of bridles do you make? :)

Nothing fancy, pretty much akin to Breyer quality. I either do leather or grosgrain ribbon (looks like miniature nylon material) and usually just use jump rings for bits. I'm more into making halters, to be honest.
