Western Pleasure Saddle

Way back in May I posted some in progress shots of a western pleasure saddle.  Well, it's done!

I had a lot of fun with this saddle.  The carving is more detailed than any other saddle to date, and the silver is a new pattern.  So..more pictures!

This saddle was intended to be part of my personal collection, but unfortunately tuition hit a little hard this semester.  I'll be putting it up for sale to help out with the cost of school.  I don't show, anyway, so a personal collection is a little useless. It's on MH$P and can be found here. Update - It's sold! Good luck to the new owner!

In a general model horse sense, for those wanting a good shot in OF and CM/AR performance classes with as little tack as possible, I strongly recommend a Working Girl and a G4 Driving Horse.  They can trade tack very nicely, and despite some chunky legs the driving horse can be a very nice performance prospect.
