It is a beaut. And a ton of work!! Just such a killer product. Kudos to Mooman (Fab3D), Laurie and Paul.

Laurie's imagery is just so impressive. She really knows how to ice a cake!

Niiiiice. It's almost as if he's putting his foot on the brake (even though it's just the stirrup) to get Harry to stop. :)

Thx! Here is a video of one the guys I work with (but not reining- mainly "natural horsemanship" type work), doing a bridleless reining slide stop. It is a dramatic manuever. :)

Actually I've always wanted to do a piece like this but couldn't do it with the previous horse models- only Harry can bend this way....the main render of the horse and rider is totally unretouched.
 
If you can stomach it this is the most amazing horse I have ever see a video of. I think this is why I now love the Lusitano breed. It is a bullfighting video though so if you don't want to see it don't look at the video. Myself I hate the cruelty to the bull but I just am amazed at the horse. This is the cruel dance that lead to modern dressage.

First great render Laurie...but...but...he has his shirt on! That's so unusual...lol!

Great videos...I don't condone bull fighting but the horses movements in the second video are just amazing! The whole time I was watching I was worried for the horse though...
