Holiday halter

I made this halter for my Model Horse Blab Secret Santa recipient.
I don't think she's a tack collector, but I hope she likes it anyway.

  6. Thanks everyone!

    Millie--the rope is a simple four strand round braid. Susan Bensema Young has good directions on how to braid this way in her very excellent book the Guide to Making Model Horse Tack.

    Shanti--the noseband is just a bit of polar fleece sewn over the leather. I had planned to go with red, but it turned out that green was all I had on hand.

  8. I stumbled across your blog while looking for real life horse tack.

    Your stuff is INCREDIBLE!! I cannot believe the amount of work and detail you put into it. If I still had the time/space/energy for models, I would definitely want some custom work. Keep it up!
