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!

  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,

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

  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.
