It’s Got A Body

The saddle is coming together.

I’ve always used Rio Rondo trees or Hayley saddle trees, so this was my first time using the one produced by World of Model Horses. It’s been a bit of an adjustment—pattern wise. Mostly in the horn portion because it’s connected instead of separated.

I used clamps to hold it together while it dried.

I had to retool one fender after skiving a hole into one. The main pieces have been put together and pins have been added. I’m really happy with how it’s coming together. The body portion of the saddle is done, but I still need to make stirrups.

My cat was on top of the whole process. Everyone being home in my house has totally thrown her off of her game.
