Bridles of the Americas: Vol. 1: Indian Silver

65.00

This first-ever definitive book on bridles by Ned and Jody Martin with Robert Bauver includes descriptions of the styles and origins of bridles used in Mexico as well as by Native Americans in the Southwest. It features 500 stunning color images in an impressive 12” by 13 1/2” hardback format. The Navajo and Southern Plains Indians loved the flash of silver to adorn their horses and themselves. This book traces the evolution and use of silver bridles as well as gorgets, pectorals, hairplates and concha belts, all of which were first obtained through trade networks, and later made by the Indians. The second volume of this series will be published in 2011 and includes quilled, beaded and cloth bridles of the Northern Plains and Plateau. The 3rd volume will cover South American bridles, prison horsehair pieces, and vaquero, cowboy and buckaroo bridles.
