I got on the sites you recommended Saddlebag. I was wondering about stitching the saddle, I am glad to hear it can be done by hand. I have registered on the Leatherworks site. I was impressed by the saddles I did see and also realize it will be hard and the first one will be more like an experiment. My husband agreed that we would do this together. Not sure when we would do this..much research first. Thank you both so much! Hubby thought we might start with something easier first, I think that's a good idea, maybe a halter or a horn bag or something. :)
Can't afford a 650.00 tree that I found, any suggestions on where to purchase or rent a kit of nice wood but economical trees?
