Born In A Tack Trunk
Cradle
For the young, future equestrian




This piece, made for a family of equestrians, is Brent's presentation piece for 2008 that embodies his best craftsmanship and design work. It incorporates many of Brent's tack trunk features such as leather handles and brass trunk hardware. The primary woods are birds eye maple and walnut with painted poplar for the end standards. The cradle can either be suspended on the jump pole between the jump standards using leather stirrup straps, or used in the more conventional manner resting on the floor with two removable rockers. The hood which is latched down with trunk clasps is also removable.
