Kokanee’s Gear

Remember Paula-of-the-great-hat from yesterday?  Well she rides a magnificent blue appaloosa named Kokanee and this is his gear.

It was early morning, with that gorgeous slanted light, and while we waited for everyone to get organized, I noticed this beautiful found still life.  Look at this rawhide bosal, the horsehair macate, the silver and the leather……all hallmarks of the old traditions of horsemanship handed down from the Spaniards and our own First Nations People.  Thankfully people have valued these things enough to preserve them and to continue their craft so that we can use and appreciate them today! After all this time, they still work!
