I liked the pelt in this image: I might also do some "greaves" like this horse has. And I like the straps and barding on the horses the black riders have in The Lord of the Rings. I was never going to copy source material exactly, I like to put my muses in a blender and see what comes out! ;-) @Rae134 I think perhaps winged horses will need their very own tack to work properly with the wings. Come to think of it I'm not quite sure how riding a winged horse would really work, as having your legs stuck in the feathers would seem to interfere with the horse's ability to fly, and a horse with bat-like wings wouldn't have anywhere for your legs, because the sides would be largely sail area. I think the rider's legs would need to go over and in front of the wings, which would look a bit awkward, and probably be rather difficult for the rider in the flappy taking off and landing stages of flight. LOL But hey, this is where my brain is after staying up past 5AM working, and then waking up at 11.
