Like most tackmakers, I collect photos of tack.
I'm interested in just about anything that could possibly be put on a horse, but what I love most of all is good clear photos of something rare, exotic and awesome.
This Cornish heavy horse show harness qualifies on all counts!These photos were taken by British hobbyist, Jackie Radwanski, at the 2014 Wessex Heavy Horse Show.
I haven't been able to find much information about Cornish show harnesses online, but they appear to be regular heavy horse in-hand harnesses with lots of extra embellishments.
Although I can't be certain, this particular Cornish harness appears to be the one made to celebrate the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.
It's a beautiful piece of tack...
and I even though I have no interest in replicating this in 1:9 scale (sorry!)...
I am happy to have so many wonderful pictures of it for my files!
Thank you so much for allowing me to share your pictures, Jackie!
I would love to make "Tack reference Tuesday" a semi-regular blog feature. If you have good, clear photos of an unusual tack item you'd like to share, please send them my way!
