As for the collar thing - halters are almost alien to us over here . The natural horsemanship people use halters but in the UK headcollars are the norm.
Hi, I really like the simplistic look of what you have done! Do you sell any items you make?

Very nice!

I am still confused though... what I see around your horse's neck is a halter that's just been undone, dropped from the nose, and redone around the neck only... am I missing something??

Nope, I was incorrect. I thought it was a collar but it's what you posted - an undone halter and placed around his neck - time for new glasses!!

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

To horseygirl1234 ( and everyone else )

Although I do not have a commercial buisness or shop, I do make and sell saddlery, mainly bridlework and harness.
All of my work is 100% hand made using English leather and materials only.
If you or anyone else has a specific request PM me

Yes my horse is wearing a headcoller that has been undone and placed around her neck , what I might have been refering to as a halter is the rope type halters used by the natural horsey people.

That bridle is beautiful. =) Your work is amazing, especially that browband I commented on at one point. I wish I could learn to do work like that.

There is no reason why you can't learn to do work like mine. All you need is to spend time with a saddler and / or do a training course. Then all you need is tons of patience and the correct tools.

I dream of this... but alas, no saddlers nearby; at least that I'm aware of or don't charge thousands for classes.

My bro-in-law works with leather making mostly medieval type stuff; I have tried to ask him for help making my own bridles and stuff before but he lives in Michigan (about 2500 miles away) so there are always other priorities when I see him :)

Nice work though... Very pretty!
