I made this way back in 2009. Its actually not a bad little saddle. If I go back to when I was a child, I can remember being told off for using my grandad soldering wire as horse bits for my Sindy horses, I used to make it into little pelhams as they were more realistic than that horrid plastic bridle they came with. So the tack making goes way back, it was just laying dormant for 20 odd years, lol.
Somethings haven't changed, I still use the same hardware and a very similar template for certain saddles. I even still use that Stud girth template which I guess I have never had reason to change...it probably just has a lot more detailing now.
Anyway in 4 years I have gone from my first saddle above to the most recent saddle here -
I wonder what I will be posting pictures of in years to come? :)
