Everyone Starts Somewhere

While I'm far from calling myself an expert in tack making, I do feel like I'm getting better. I found what I would consider to be the first ever saddle I made. It once was a Breyer saddle and I customized it.
I gave it new knee rolls and redid the tree.
 I gave the saddle shape by inserting a metal tree into it. 
The saddle served me well for my novice days, but I evolved so this saddle has been retired.
So yes, every artist has to start somewhere. You can only go up!


  1. Absolutely right! I customized Breyer English saddles too, but I didn't think of putting in a tree. I love your color sense on your latest English set.
