Art Bridles: made from bailing twine

Hey all,
I am an artist and musician as well as horse owner.
For one of my art pursuits I wanted to make some art that was both functional and environmentally friendly.
I made some bridles from twine, and wanted to share them with you.

Bitless bridle model made with red, blue, yellow, and white twine. Chrome plated clips and o rings.

This one was a halter where I just took pieces at random and left no consideration for color or knots. There is a chrome o ring on the halter to clip to.

This one I used the rust twine to make a regular English bridle.
You are seeing the clean side of all of these, the "functional side" where the pieces are tied together is tied just like a rope halter would be, some are even adjustable!

Going to make more soon to try more types of braids, any color combos or styles you would like to see?

Those are so creative!! Would certainly take a lot of ingenuity-how cool! Maybe you could sell these in your area eventually? :)

What a wonderful way to re-use bailing twine! Very nice.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
