A new business?

Hi guys! It's me, back again with another question .

I'm 14, starting to think about earning money and saving up - for a car, or a horse, or something like that which I will inevitably end up wanting eventually, and I was thinking about interesting ways that I could earn it. Sure, I could babysit (actually I would rather like to, I like kids) but also, there must be some way more original.

So I came up with this plan...

You know how zillions and zillions of people make 'ribbon browbands' for shows and the like, or decorated browbands with crystals, paint, stitching, the like? Lots also make horse-hair jewellery or stall signs. But what about halters? The simple headcollar, that piece of nylon/rope/leather (if you're fancy) which is really just a bit boring. Well, why not spice 'em up a bit? After all, everything else is decorated - why not a halter?

I would use halters like this because they are quite wide and nylon-type material that can be stitched into with a heavy-duty needle. I could also stick on gemstones, etc (but stitching would be preferable to avoid rubbing to the horse's face and it is flat and soft - gemstones stick out and would also fall off easily with heavy-duty use.)

I could do custom orders with stitched names or decorations or also some generic flower/snowflake/swirls/etc. designs.

Would this work? Would you buy one? How could I market them? General suggestions/thoughts?

Thanks in advance, and cookies if you read all that
