Today's featured tack is a Moroccan style Arabian costume that is on display at Kentucky Horse Supply in Louisville, Kentucky. These pictures were taken by Heather Moreton who says: I've seen those sets at Arabian championship shows. They always have them at the Egyptian event because the sheikhs come over and donate them as prizes.
I ride at an Arabian barn, but the emphasis is on endurance not showing. I've never had the chance to examine one of these costumes in person, so I really appreciate all these pictures. So many detail shots and different angles! Thanks to Heather for allowing me to share them here.
