Rayvin is an amazing sculptor, and apparently that talent applies to tack making, too! This might be her first Traditional scale western saddle, and it was definitely her first go at tooling. She knocked it out of the park! Congrats, Rayvin - you're a winner.

Sacha described herself as a novice in her introduction post, and set about making quite the ambitious project! She completed her english set for the Connemara on time, and made everything from the hardware to the boots to the stirrups! Great job, Sacha - you're a winner.
