For Me?!

Finished my saddle!

I can't even remember the last time I made tack specifically with myself in mind. All the tack I've had previously has always been a "I'll keep it until after the show" kind of deal (or, "oops I need money").

I find it funny how every basic hunter saddle I turn out is made based on the exact same patterns, but just going through the process of eyeballing and teensy tiny tweaks, comes out so differently from the last.

And a peak of it on the Fjord monster:

 And an obligatory Fjord monster updated shot to go with:

He still has a long way to go, but boy is he growing on me. :)

Also done today with no photographic proof because all the pictures I tried to take in the studio today ended up looking like this...

The replacement girth is done, as is about half the tan bridle's crownpiece and a solid start on the first Fjord bridle.

Progress! Yay!


  1. You do such lovely work! I absolutely love the shape of the saddle along with the panels, amazing! :)

  2. So detailed - I still can't get over how that's 1:32 scale!

  3. That saddle is amazing! I love the panels.
