Image five of twelve for the "Resistance" series I did in my last drawing class.
Pushing composition a bit more. I'm not a fan of tie-downs no matter their use. They are intended to prevent the horse's head from coming up or giving them something to brace against during hard stops. Ideally it would encourage a round topline, but what often occurs is increased resistance and a more inverted frame.
