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.
