Icelandic Horses.

Look at the pair go!

Rescued drafter. He only had one eye.

Thoroughbreds!

NMTM #1

National Model Tack Month, or NMTM, started on April 1st.
I haven't started on my projects. Yet. Instead I decided to compare two pieces of my tack.
The first saddle is from 2014 and the second one is 2017.
I was ridiculously proud of the first saddle because at that time it was the best saddle I'd made.  The second one is 2017. There are so many differences and improvements that I wouldn't know where to start. It's amazing to see what 3 years can do in terms of tack making. So if you try your first piece and it's less than stellar, don't give up. Like any skill it takes time to improve and it's fun to look back and see where you started.
