CM Jumping Pony

More pics of my WIP jumping pony, Secret Weapon. He's a drastic custom with portions contributed by a Marigold, a Classic Arabian Mare, and two Classic Arabian Stallions. I initially put this guy together a couple years ago, but it's taken me a while to get the courage to finish him.

I'm really glad I waited because his customizing work ended up much more elaborate than I originally planned. I intended him to be a light grey Connemara I would use strictly for performance. I had tack made in anticipation.

I'm now pondering how those red boots, breastcollar and saddle pad are going to look on an orange chestnut. Ouch. Yeah, I may be buying new tack--or not putting tack on him at all.
