Above is the latest piece from Off The Track Designs. This bridle rack was a commissioned piece. The board has been stained red mahogany and is protected by several coats of polyurethane. The hook in the center was purchased separately by the owner and affixed to the rack. This lovely piece is already hanging in the barn, holding bridles, halters and helmets.
This rack is a work in progress. It will be a personal piece and hand painted to resemble a 19th century Paisley Shawl that has passed through my family for generations. I can't wait to finish it!
Finally, after a few more rides, I've decided to sell my new-to-me saddle. It is a 2010-model M. Toulouse Annice close contact saddle. 18" seat, medium, spring tree with matching M. Toulouse stirrup leathers. I love the flap position and length (13.5") as well as the grippy leather. It's a very balanced saddle and quite comfortable to ride in. I've found that I prefer a flatter seat to really get off my horses' backs while cantering and jumping.
For more information, check out the M.Toulouse Annice page in the Tack Sale. Thanks for looking!
I enjoy the daily inspiration provided by nature, people and pets.
