Dagmar's polo pony
I don't get many orders for classic sized tack which is unfortunate as I really enjoy working in that scale. It's small enough that there is a marked time saving on the really tedious cutting and prep stages, but it's not so small that I have to sacrifice any of my usual detail. This is a picture of a classic scale saddle I made in 2007 for Dagmar Anderson. Dagmar is a talented painter and sculptor (http://www.dagmarhorseart.com/) and she's also a fine tackmaker in her own right. Look at the bridle, martingale, breastplate and draw reins--those are her work, not mine. She also took the photograph!
