Earlier this year, I did some shopping for my Dutch friend, Anne van der Weel, at the BreyerWest swap meet.
A month later, she returned the favor.
Look at all this great stuff she bought for me!
The saddles are flat out amazing.
Steffi Honrath is one of the very best tack makers in the hobby today. The shapes and proportions of her saddles are spot-on, and her workmanship is first rate.
Here's the full set...And a close up of the bridle.
The Iberian saddle is even more impressive.
I am blown away by the simple elegance of this. The shapes and details are just perfect. It's so much better than any Iberian saddle I ever made.
And look at how well it fits!
It is so hard to make model saddles that fit like this. It's just... perfect.
In addition to saddles, Steffi also makes beautiful sewn goods.
Anne bought me three of her stable blankets.
Again, I really appreciate the proportions, workmanship and fit.
I got a pile of pads...
and a few pieces of doll clothes, including my Earth Day doll's shirt and hoodie.Thank you, Anne and Steffi. I love everything so much!
