    Nutty Saddler is a member here on HF, and a very good guy! He does fantabulous work and I would highly recommend him.

    I'll have to bother him How are his prices? I'm not expecting something ludicrously cheap, but I can't afford to drop $800 on a bridle alone I'll probably cast the decorative pieces myself, commission a sculptor to sculpt the design. Then mold it, cast it, etc.
    If I can cast a perfect match of a roosters comb, I can cast a silver pieces for my tack -viking stance-

    I've been puttering around on a sketch for a custom bit as well. Just the shanks, the mouthpiece would be a mullen. I'm afraid to send it to the bit maker, I think I'd faint at the quote.

    I have no idea how his prices are but all his stuff I've seen was impeccable quality. I hope you can cast your own design because that would be pretty darn cool. For a custom bit that is good quality, you would probably be looking at anywhere from $300 to $2000, depending on how much silver you want, how detailed, and who makes it. You might look around your area for someone just trying to break into the world of bit and/or spur making. If they aren't really well known, their prices will likely be a bit cheaper and they will also want to do a super good job for word of mouth advertising.

    If you can hold a needle in each hand you can stitch the old fashioned way. One needle passes thro the leather then you hold the thread out of the way and pass the second needle thro from the other side. If one thread breaks the other one holds unlike a chain stitch from a machine which unravels. You will need an awl for making stitching holes. A stitching pony would make sewing easier as it holds your work. Ps my leather stitcher cost me $5K but it will sew fleece onto skirts like a dream.
