This set includes a bridle, racing saddle, girths, three saddle cloths, and a “neoprene” saddle pad. The bridle has been made from hand-cut leather lace and features fixed buckles. The bit hanger is raised, just like Justify’s racing bridle. The noseband has been covered with carefully matched blue suede and the underside lined with natural leather to protect your model. The bit is a modified Rio Rondo etched driving bit with a hand-made wire ring bit. The “mouthpiece” has been painted with Testors Enamel. The reins attach to the bit with fixed buckles, feature “rubber” grips and a buckle end. The entire bridle has only two points of attachment - one at the crown and one at the bit - for incredibly easy show days.
The saddle has been carved to match the decorative stitching on Justify’s saddle and has been edged in white, just like the full-scale piece. The stirrup leathers have been carved to mimic stitching, edged in white, and the stirrups are a modified pair from Horsing Around that have been painted with Testors Enamel for durability. The overgirth slips under the fluffy, hand-dyed seat cover and slides freely for easy adjustment. The regular girth is attached to the overgirth for quick and easy tacking, and the whole assembly is affixed by one working buckle on the overgirth. The excess leather tucks neatly into the three keepers on the overgirth. Soft chamois mimics the neoprene grip on the girth and helps keep the overgirth and regular girth aligned.
Included are three saddle cloths - the Derby, Preakness, and Belmont. I recreated these digitally in Adobe Illustrator and printed them on color-fast inkjet fabric that won’t bleed or fray. All three cloths have been painted on the side that flips up with fabric paint and the Derby cloth has added painted detail on the metallic stripe.
