First saddle of 2008
Since yesterday's post featured what I expect to be the year's last saddle, I thought today I'd show a picture of the year's first. I made this one back in January and it was a bit of an oops. I was aiming for pony size, and while it does fit the Stone pony, it was just a little bit bigger than the customer wanted. I ended up making her a new one and selling this to someone else. I've made a lot of saddles in the past four years, but it wasn't until 2007 that I started getting orders for saddles that weren't all brown or all black. I think I personally prefer the understated elegance of a one-color saddle, but these two tone variations are a lot of fun to make.
