I Am Speechless

I like leopard print, but this left me speechless. I usually don't pick on native costumes on this site as I don't classify that at Tacky Tack. The reasoning is that just because it looks weird to us, if it is a country's properly executed, correct, native tack, then it is perfectly acceptable in that context. This however, is not. Egyptian dancing horse tack is traditionally solid colored with silver accents, usually black. This is an abomination in any country. It might look cool if only the seat of the saddle were leopard print, I know that in period, leopard skins were often used as accent pieces on native tack. This is just overdoing it folks.

  1. Are you sure that's not a leopard who has learned to lay real still in the shape of a saddle? I'm pretty sure it's just waiting to get to a quiet place, then it will change back into a leopard and eat that horse!!

  2. Why is sitting so "high" on the horse? Looks like it is six inches above the horse. Of course, with all those spots, my eyes may be seeing things!

  7. Wow! I sooooo want an outfit like that! It would look soooo nice on my not-so-fat-anymore Fjord horse. It might blend in more.

  8. How can it be normal in any context for a saddle to sit that high off the horse's back? And to be leopard print to boot?

  9. Pretty horse, though. I'd save him from his shame and take him home.
