Throwback Thursday

Tiffany posted this picture on my Facebook page today.  This is most, but not all, of the saddles I've made for her, arranged from oldest to newest.
Wow!  That's a lot of tack!  One of these days I'm going to take a similar picture of all my Purdy horses!

  1. The oldest one looks very similar to the one I have!

    1. It does, doesn't it? They're of the same vintage and were probably made from the same pattern.

      For the record, Tiffany bought that saddle secondhand. We didn't "meet" until 2006.

  2. I don't even have one! I would be just fine with one I think...

    1. Remember--these are just Tiffany's BCS saddles. She has at this many and more saddles by other artists. Her tack collection is truly amazing!

    1. The first two I made for Tiffany were a pony endurance saddle and a pony dressage saddle. In return, I got Zips Cocco Chip. Beyond that, however, my memory fails me. Nowadays we don't even keep track. Tiffany gets all the tack she "needs" and I get all the models I "need." It works for us!
