One of my goals is to make a halter for every horse in the herd. Since I received a sheet of fabric halter plates (another secret santa gift) I figured it was time to start working on accomplishing this. In the end, Roxy…
and Zenyatta each got a pretty new halter, decked out with the plates and etched hardware.
In Roxy and Honey’s case, I had a go at making working tongue buckles:
Surprisingly they’re not difficult to use, and all seems to be well so far. I think I’ll keep playing around with it. I’d like to make some gaming tack or halter/bridle combos for trails and such.
Also, I’ve been continuing to work on English pads.
Each one gets a little better, which is encouraging! It’s nice to see progress.
As always they still need more work, as my stitching isn’t quite as straight as I would like it to be. But I’m much happier with the shape and size now. 🙂

Hahaha! I have the same goal too! I thought I was the only crazie enough. Great work by the way. My halters are something, shall I say, special. Hehe love yours though!
Hehe, thanks! 🙂
Btw. Where do you think you could get halter plates like yours?
They were made by Kimberley Smith, but I’m not sure if she makes them to sell anymore.
How much is It
Love the halters! The patterned bits are just too cool! When your done with your herd, wanna come over and outfit mine? 😀
Oooh, those look fantastic!
Would you sell the halters? I’m totally in love with them!
