This martingale made to fit a larger quarter horse or thoroughbred is made of USA Herman Oak leather. The tooling design is a unique design I drew just for the peice. In this case the background is dyed giving it a filigree look when in reallity it is not. The center has a unique rawhide braided star with a sterling silver concho for an accent. It is totally functional but decorative to be a center piece in your home.
