Anyway, she loves collecting Breyer horses. This christmas, she got a huge wooden barn and several more Breyers. I was talking to her about it, and she said she wanted to get some tack for her Breyers, but she couldn't find any.
I have quite the collection of Breyers myself, and I thought making some tack would be fun. Her mom has done so much for my brother and family, so I wanted to make some for her daughter as well.
That's sums up the background story. So, I have a few questions for you guys.
Here is the list of "tack" I want to make, so could you tell me 1. What materials I would need to make the item, 2. Where I could find the materials, 3. How much of the materials would I need, and 4. could you give me some tips on how to make the tack (They don't need to be fancy "detail" tips, just the basics on how to make them.) This tack needs to be "play time" durable. I want about 4-5 of each item unless otherwise specified.
- Rope or Nylon Halters
- Lead Ropes
- Saddle Pads (Solid colors)
- Western Bridles (whatever kind is easiest to make, Hackamores maybe?)
- Western Saddles (no leather detailing, maybe some jewels)
- Turnout Blankets (2)
- Show Halter (2)
