Argentine Harness

Global Horse Culture Archive on January 31, 2008, 19:20

This is a spectacularly decorated harness on an Argentine draft horse. Reminds me of a funky Harley rider's gear with all the brass studs on black leather! The photographer notes this horse was dressed up for a gaucho festival called Mataderos, in Buenos Aires. There is an additional picture of the horse from the side on flickr, where you can also see the delightfully painted cart the horse is hitched to.
