Pearls by caligis Pearls by caligis
I got the idea for this from the book "The great european schools of Classical Dressage" by Laurioux & Henry. Fantastic book~ The picture was tiny in comparison to this, so I had to do some improvisation :P I also wanted too keep it looking sort of sketchy and not perfectly realistic.

This is an Andalusian colt. He was wearing a normal black bridle. I changed it to a mahogony rolled leather double bridle with a loose pearl chain browband : D I couldn't find any browbands like this online. I might make one someday. I would not mind owning this bridle :)

I finally made a decent looking curb chain! In the past I got lazy with them. Case in point: [link] lol. It isn't as hard as it looks though : D

I spent forever on this, at least 5 hours. At the end I had to crank up the brightness a lot after testing it out on my boyfriend's pc... Doesn't look like I want it to on this pc, but hopefully it'll turn out ok on yours!
