Horse tack you have made! Show us!

I thought this could be interesting to see; what have you made for your horse? Numnahs, blankets, bridles, browbands...?

Show it and tell us, no matter how small or big it is :)


I guess I should start. :P
I've made a riding skirt for me, it's warm and very comfy to ride with :) Normally it's lying prettily all over the horses back, but not this time appearantly x)


Here is a bigger picture of it before I coloured it and put the grey ribbon on it :)

I've made the halter on this picture, used two browbands, a chain and pieces of a bridle. :) I don't have a better picture tho and it's broken/taken apart now :)


My dad made the stalls

And finally I've made these hideous blankets for them. X) Good in the stall when they're sweaty or wet :P


So.. what have you done? Show us!

I'm not very good at making stuff so I leave that to the experts. I am good at buying stuff though! Lol!

I made a halter, lol. Do you remember the old friendship bracelets we all used to make in school? Well, I did that, only with yarn and about 10 strands wide. Then I decided it wasn't strong enough, so I doubled it and then stitched it along the edges. I actually found it the other day and it's still in usable condition, so funny that you posted this - it's been buried in a closet for YEARS.

I've made bridles, reins, halters, lead ropes. I Don't have pictures of all of them, but... there is a thread on here about how to make a bridle. If I get pictures I'll post them. At the moment I'm trying to figure out my new laptop and am still not quite an expert on it. :)

Saddle skirt?

My mom made me this amazing saddle skirt. We live on the rainy west coast of British Columbia. She made it from Polartec Powershield. It is a very hard to find technical fabric meant for outerwear (jackets etc) and is wind/water repellent,very durable and stretchy. It has a water repellent outside face, bonded to warm fleece. The skirt velcro's around my waist, and protects the saddle, but mainly it's for keeping me warm & dry. Even with chaps, the rain was running down my jacket into my crotch and saddle (NOT FUN, LOL). This is a super design (I brought my saddle to her shop, and she just made it up). It has highly reflective tape sewn on as well. I'm trying to convince her to sell them, but her business is extremely busy...so right now the best I can tell you is that the fabric is available from Discovery Trekking... Discovery Trekking Outfitters
