plume feathers

don't really know much about them as far as information (anybody have any?) but, I thought they were really pretty so I decided to make some to fit to my bridle. I liked how they turned out so much, I made four of them with leftover feathers to make more. The coolest thing is I didn't have to screw or punch holes into my bridle I used a previously existing buckle hole and screws in like a chicago screw would so switching them out is really easy... Haven't got a picture of it on her but, it looks very cute ^.^ and she doesn't seem to notice it/ be bothered by it. Also It doesn't bounce into her face like I was nervous it might... I love watching it bob between her ears while we ground drive... it's like ground driving a circus pony. I need to figure out a way to keep it from turning in it's spot though. LOL.

IDK why but the first picture got distorted a tad.





So is this where it's supposed to fit on the bridle? What if anything are these used for other than for weddings and the circus?

life has no remote control hitch them up and drive them your self

I like them! They remind me of a Circus wagon's bridle.

They look wonderful!
I have a pretty peacock that I was going to save his tail feathers when they shed out for cat toys. Maybe now I will have a fun project for next winter!
For a suggestion on keeping them from turning, I have a bottle of Gorilla Glue. I've used it to re-attach the knob on my grooming table's arm. It is very strong and you don't need much because it kinda fills in the cracks. What if you put a couple/three dabs around the edges and see what happens?

I found a not so good photo of my turkey feather plume, you can barely see that he also has harness bells on the saddle and the carriage lamps are lit.
It was in an antique vehicle class at a horse show, my sister and I dressed up as a bride and groom.

It was many many moons ago when I first started driving, before I knew the many reasons why an overcheck should not be used.

I like the ostrich feathers much better.

oh taffy, thank you so much for sharing your picture! I didn't see it until now but, it's lovely!!!

I love the ostrich feathers too. They look so delicate when they move. Though part of me wishes I had the fancy plate I see the turkey/chicken feathers mounted to.

Thanks for the gorilla glue idea. I think I am going to try that for the washers and get a rubber O ring washer to wedge under it.
