finding a package from Shannon in my mailbox!
Oh, what a beautiful little saddle!
Close up of the tooling--it's hard to believe this isn't full sized.
Of course I wasn't content just to look at my new saddle...
It was absolutely necessary to tack something up!
I've owned this Darla Doll for several years, but because I have more dolls than saddles, she has never seen the inside of a showring. Hopefully that will be changing soon!
All the silver plates on this set were handcut and tooled by Shannon.
Another detail shot--I love the romal's tooled popper.
If you would like to see more of Shannon's work be sure to check out her blog. She is currently offering a spot for a full tooled Western sidesaddle. If you're in the market for a truly spectacular piece of tack, look no further!
Thanks so much for the beautiful saddle, Shannon. I just love it!
