Sister act

They may be best friends, but these sisters are awfully competitive.
As soon as one got a brand new custom made saddle blanket...
the other decided she needed a saddle blanket of her own!
If the color and style of this pad look familiar, you're probably a Model Horse Performance subscriber.  The pattern for this blanket was included in the Summer 2012 issue.  I swapped out one thread color (the lightest), but otherwise everything is made exactly to the specs.
There's only one problem with the new pad--one of the cowboys has decided it suits him to a T.
Who will get to keep the blanket?  Only time will tell!  


  1. I hope that the girl prevails! Girls RULE!! (I mean, no offense to boys, but girls will ALWAYS be better and Cuter). GIRL POWER!


  2. You'll just have to make another one. ;)

  3. The cowboy needs a blanket of his own... ;-)
    They look really great, just like the real thing - I understand him and the girls.

    Best wishes,
    Doreen from Germany

  4. I think they should just get on their horses and race for it. Winner gets the blanket.

  5. I would like to see the back =)

  6. You tell such great stories with your photos. I love this one! And I agree with Windwalker175. I think they need to have a race to see who gets the blanket.

  7. Could you be able to do a step-by-step how-to on how to cross-stitch a saddle pad?

    1. I've thought about that, but honestly, my cross stitch skills are pretty rudimentary. I like complicated patterns, but I don't know any complicated stitches. Both pads in this post are done entirely with a basic cross stitch.
