There's a little Kay Neilsen in this.

And a lot of Roger Dean, to be honest.
Unfortunately most of the details disappear in this small format. There’s a saddle on the bird’s back that is more or less invisible here. That’s kind of the whole point of the painting . . .

Oh your right! I can see the reins of the "bridal" on the bird's head? Or no?

I like how the tree slants away from the bird...creates drama.

Brilliant, Just a really well done work. It´s a great example of a nice aboard about the subject.

Many thanks for the comments.
And, yes, that is a bridle one can barely discern hanging from the birds mouth.
