Pink progress

Most of my huntseat sets are more or less the same, but I'm trying to shake things up a little with Purdy's pink pony jumper set.  To that end, I've built my first five point breastplate.  
 It took a couple tries to get the fit right, but I'm pleased with the results.
I also added stirrups and stirrup leathers. 
The leathers are pretty standard...
but the stirrup pads are pink.  So cute and so ridiculous! 
I still have the boots and bridle left to do.  I wonder how many more new ways I can come up with to make this set Purdy-er than average?

  1. For the bridle, it would be cute if you did a black bridle with pink keepers, pink padding and maybe some pink crystals on the browband! Don't forget the flash attachment/or you could do a figure 8 bridle!

  2. I'm not a fan of pink, but this set is turning out to be pretty cool. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

    1. They are from the World of Model Horse Collecting on eBay. I bought the white resin pads, primed, painted and sealed them. Time consuming, but worth the effort I think.

  6. Just a thought – they make real horse bits with pink (and various other colors) rubber bars. Happy Mouth bits come in pink in various bit styles ranging from D-Rings to Eggbutts and loose ring snaffles to Pelhams and elevator gags. If you are interested in adding a little extra pink to the set, I make loose ring and D-ring bits with colored “rubber bars” in model scale, and I would be more than happy to make and send you either a D-ring or loose ring snaffle with pink “rubber bars” for free. : )
    If you are interested, you can email me at fairyduststables@yahoo.com, or visit my MH$P ad at http://modelhorsesalespages.com/view.asp?id=1090541 to view photos of the model scale bits.
    Thanks!

  9. Would you ever consider selling one of your English saddle patterns? I am a tack maker myself, and I like everything of mine to be original, but this has been quite the struggle of mine for a while...Would you ever sell a pattern? If so, how much would it cost? :) Thank you so much!
