When it comes to tack and prop making, I’m very much a DIY kind of person. I like figuring things out on my own, but I do have my limits. Sometimes, it’s just easier to purchase something made by another hobbyist than try to learn the skills and buy the materials to make it myself.
So far my collection is small, but it’s growing.
Not too long ago I added two more pieces to this collection, made by Rachel Fail.
First, a pair of blue sports medicine boots:
I love these boots. They look like the real thing, they aren’t bulky, they fit a variety of models AND are easy to use. That’s a really tricky combination! These are some of the nicest SMB I’ve seen for model horses.
I’m hoping to add more colors to my collection in the future! After all…
… or bell boots, or saddle pads, or halters or other miscellaneous horsey-related items.
Also added was a metal saddle stand.
Rachel has a tutorial written up on how to make these here. I wasn’t feeling ambitious enough to tackle that project and instead took to
stalking keeping an eye on her Etsy page, hoping to snag one the next time they were available.
Like the boots, this looks just like the real thing. (the straps on the bottom were added by me since I wanted a little extra storage space)
Plus, it folds up, which makes me happy.
Thank you Rachel for these new treasured pieces in my collection! More of her work can be seen here on her Facebook page or Etsy shop.

These look really cool! And you can never have enough horse accessories, I agree!
Where do you buy the Velcro that you use to close them?
