Real quick

I have my second parent teacher conference of the day in fifteen minutes, so today's post consists of a single picture.  This is Tiffany's classic scale pony all purpose saddle.  I am really pleased with the way it turned out!
Also--don't forget entries for the Reader Appreciation Raffle close tonight at midnight.  I'll post the names of the winners tomorrow!

  4. Since my yahoo email got messed up (more than a month ago) I haven't been to blogger hardly at all! I just caught up on what's been going on. *phew* I didn't miss your reader appreciation contest (thank goodness it's a leapyear!). Love the harnesses, the saddle rats, the saddle iguana, the new horses and as always your saddles (old and new, I love them all!)

  8. Very nice!
    Is it based off the pattern of the one you said was not showable, or is it a teardown of that saddle!?

    Regardless, you know how to make quick work!

  9. Thanks everyone! This saddle was so much fun to make. I love the small size and old fashioned style. It will have safety stirrups eventually. I have to wait for them because I accidentally threw out the first pair (don't ask!).

    Liz--the saddle stand was made by Carmen Robertson of Texas. She makes wonderful wooden props. I feel so fortunate to have two of her jumps as well as two of her saddle stands.

    Terri--This is an all new saddle based on the old pattern. Last time I was going for a generic close contact look. This one is more like a kids stubben or courbette. It has a round cantle and short little flaps.

  15. I really need to get a classic sized English saddle!! I have a bridle, but no saddle. There is only so much you can do bareback :) I really like this one.
