Above is my plan in progress for a new gaming saddle. I chose sunflowers because I'm really in love with all things sunny, yellow and bright right now. My new little house's bottom floor is almost totally a sunny yellow color and when the sun hits it, It's just amazing!
I'm so happy here. I love my little neighborhood, I love that everything is so close and I love being in the middle of it all :)
Also I tend to share any tack that I make and keep with my friends and we all have green and blue as our main "theme" colors when we show so I figured that a sunny yellow flower on a gaming set would be perfect to use.
I'm almost totally finished with Evelyn Mundy's bronc nose halter. just need to put some finishing touches on it before it gets sent out.
I'm "stupid exited" to announce that my work has been accepted into an exhibit at Transylvania's Morlan Gallery called "Enough to Swear By". https://www.transy.edu/about/arts/morlan/calendar
I will be exhibiting my Parade Saddle, My western pleasure set and Anna's green Braided bridle. My stands were cleverly made by Robin Hudson and the Morlan Gallery is excited to use them. The Gallery is on the Lexington Art Hop so I'm hoping to maybe get some new folks looking at my work. That being said; I learned from the last time I branched out to Art Galleries that My model Horse following is loyal and wonderful and I will forever be grateful to them.
I will be selling the Western Pleasure Set and the Parade set for $1000 each. Please contact me if you're interested.
I hope that you guys are having a really great fall!

Above is my very first Bronc Nose Halter. IT was inspired by an amazing piece that I received from Evelyn Mundy for helping her with braidwork. I'd love it if eventually there was like a tackmaker halter exchange but I don't have the cycles to organzie it. Seems like I never have the cycles to do much of anything anymore.. lol! I've always been this way but now I admit it :)
I also will have pieces in a Juried Exhibit at the Morlan Gallery at Transyvania University in Lexington, Ky. I'm so excited about this! :) I'll be exhibiting "Anna's Green" bridle and My Opus set and Parade Set. The parade set and the Opus Set will be for sale. Anna's bridle will not be unless Anna wants to sell it!
I hope that you guys are having a great weekend!
