Here are a few interesting links and blog posts I've come across recently:
For those interested in details of ornamental tack, here is an academic article (with many illustrations) about the different styles of tack found in various Central Asian and Siberian ethnic groups. It's quite fascinating!
Our friend Dario has a post with extensive links to images of Neo-Assyrian horses, tack and horsemanship, as depicted in ancient art.
And heartfelt good wishes to Julie at Riding Aside, who is sadly forced to cease blogging for the time being. Send good thoughts her way!
