Last week I tackled the next batch of nerdy English saddle pads.
These two are Middle-Earth inspired… Rohan and Gondor, to be exact. My grandma spoiled me with the extended collection of The Hobbit for my birthday, so my parents and I watched those and immediately had to continue on by re-watching the Lord of the Rings films. I’ve been stuck in Middle Earth for the past couple of weeks… yet again. XD
(and I don’t care what critics say I totally loved the Hobbit!)
I mentioned on my Facebook page that these were easier imagined than done. Originally I wanted to embroider them. Once I realized how complex the designs were and how difficult it would be to scale them down, I decided to try painting them instead.
The end result is far from perfect, and I know I made the white tree too short but hey.
My equine drawing/painting skills are rusty so I’m glad that the horse actually looks like a horse:
And I did try to add the yellowish/gold bits to it but it hardly shows up in my photos:
I’m happy with them though. 🙂

I love them! They are so detailed, great job!
I’ve been waiting to see you do these ever since the Harry Potter ones! I love them so much! Do you plan on selling any? I’m your biggest Tolkien geek ever and I need one. 🙂
Thanks! I’m not planning on selling any though, sorry!
Gorgeous! The critics trash most of the books I love, so what. 😉
I would love to have a pair of those! 🙂
