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...
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!
