Fun with tack

Navah Joe is a customized Renate Van Der Graaff RB Romke resin.
He came to me in trade way back in 2006 or 2007. I gelded him, customized his mane and tail and painted him as a semi-portrait of one of my favorite camp horses, Navajo.
I've always meant to dress him up in a set of "camp tack" because that's what portrait models are all about. However, like so many personal projects, I've never quite gotten around to it, at least not until today.
Navah's camp bridle is a very basic Western curb bridle with the browband and throatlatch removed. We always used the bridles over halters, and this just made things easier. His name is written on a piece of colored tape which is wrapped around the offside cheekpiece. 
I added a bareback pad and now Navah Joe is ready for a camper...
or two... 
Well, you get the idea! 
This was really a fun, easy project. I can't believe I didn't do it sooner!


  1. I know it’s inspiration wasn’t lgbtq+ but the halter looks like it could be for pride month!
