Pamela DeMuth "Rimspark" resin cantering along in the best western set I've made so far (from my personal collection!)!
*10/15/00* - 1st and NAN qualified in Western Pleasure at the Autumn Classic! Tied RESERVE CHAMPION Western Performance with another mini, (the champ was a mini, too)!
|#1 - This is the first set I did: natural, basketweave, silvering, wearlethers, "rear thingies", throatlatch and "V" browband on the bridle, and split leather reins.|
|#2 - Brown with silvering and black seat, throatlatch and single leather rein.|
|#3 - Brown with tons of silvering, decorated saddlepad, throatlatch, and double braided reins.|
|#4 - Black set with silvering, double earband, and working cheekpeice buckle.|
|#5 - Dark brown with silvering, breastcollar, throatlatch, browband, and single leather rein.|
|#6 - Natural with silvering, breastcollar, single earband, double leather reins.|
|My first few bridles had painted buckles on the bridle with an adjustable loop until I got that wonderful extra-thin wire to make REAL WORKING slip buckles out of!! The older saddles also had a cinch that came from one side and buckled to the other, while my new ones have cinches that buckle on both sides (so are detachable).|
#7 - Inspired by a set I saw at JAM '99 I made this very cool set! Brown, basketweave, silvering, itty bitty tassles by horn and on stirrups, "V" browband, itty bitty beads on bridle (!) and double braided reins. Eventually I would like to make a matching breastcollar, beaded to match the bridle. I had run out of beads, though, when this scan was taken. But I have more now, I just need the time! Shown on top on a CM by my and on the bottom on a resin by Pam Demuth touched up by me.
Little Update: made a regular brown girth and white saddlepad with wearleathers on it to show in pleasure on my black appy CM new SM QH, on which it looks very nice!
|Dark brown simple bridle.|
|#8 - Natural with silvering, some basketweave, wearleathers on saddlepad. Dark brown bridle with strait browband (not the bridle that goes with it). This set plus the natural bridle I later made for it: "WOW'd the judges! It placed second to all Trads!", says it’s owner!!|
|#9 - Brown, basketweave, silvering, black seat, breastplate, rearcinch, wearleathers, throatlatch, strait browband, double braided reins ~ AS FANCY AS YOU CAN GET!! Shown on unpainted SM Resin "Rakkas" by Pam DeMuth.|
