I am new to the forum and have recently started working with leather to make equestrion wear I have had horses for years and sadly my horse aramis was put to sleep two years ago at the age of five and since then have not been back in the saddle Az was an amazing horse and tought me so much. I had him from a yearling and brought him on and backed him. He was three quatres arab and a quatre paint and a little monkey He lacerated his pastern in the field and was sent to Newmarket were he had a cast put on. When he came home some weeks later he developed pedal bone rotation due to weight bairing on his opposite leg. After months of being in the box and work sadly I had to let him go and it broke my heart Recently I was introdued to some one who makes armour for re-inactments and he has been teaching me in the art of leather work.
This has given me the opportunity to come back into the horse world that I so miss and I am now working on a line and starting up a business. This is my first v band I have made using English leather and hand cast brass fittings, so I wanted to see what you guys think
