Real quick!

As long time readers know, I am a big fan of the Model Equine Photo Showers Association (MEPSA).  
Each year, this club hosts a series of contests including one for tackmakers.  
I am proud to say that one of my sidesaddles won the tackmaking contest in 2011, but unfortunately, this year I wasn't organized enough to submit an entry.
No matter! 
Seven other (more organized!) tackmakers did enter...
and their entries are outstanding! 
My favorite is this little dog and pony circus set... 
which was inspired by the photos in this post from 2012.
The winner of the 2013 MEPSA Tackmaking Contest is chosen by popular vote, and voting closes tonight.  If you would like to help pick the winner, please visit MEPSA's contest page "real quick!"


  1. I should have entered this, darn! Hmm... maybe next time. All of these are really good too.

  2. I've already entered. My two favorites are the western saddle(love the stamping!) and the circus one.

  3. I show in the IMEHA! They are awsome!

  4. I see that you are judging the Pony Special (All Divisions). Would I be able to show performance in that division or is it only judging the horse? Also, does it have to be a custom or OF (or either)?

    Thank You!

    1. And isn't that circus one Ann F's horse?

  5. Hey Devon, I think you read the schedule wrong. I've already judged the Pony Specialty, and I haven't signed up to judge any shows in the upcoming season.

    1. My bad... I guess that was last year
