Talking tack with SBY

On Wednesday, I had the great pleasure of hosting a tack day with my friend, Susan Bensema Young.
As always, Sue brought a lot of tack. This year, however, she also brought most of her work bench. 
I love looking at another artist's tools. These chisels engrave metal...
and this is a parade saddle decorating set! 
 Some of the new-to-me tack pieces included this bosal by an unknown artist...
and saddles by Kirsteen Haley...
and Donna Allen.
I'm not familiar with Donna's work, so I took a lot of pictures of this one. 
Here is the matching saddle pad... 
and bridle.
Sue also brought a number of horses including the now complete, Rinker.
This guy has been in progress for a long time
I'm so glad I got to see him in person!
What a glorious mess! 
What a wonderful visit!
I can't wait to do it again next year, Sue!


  1. That Donna Allen saddle is beautiful!!! I love the breastcollar! :D

  2. Beautiful stuff - tack and horses. Thanks for sharing!
