This is the saddle up close.
This saddle set is a Natural Handtooled pattern in an Oak leaf owned by Annette Dean.  The doll I made is for  reining and Western Pleasure,  a gal in Canada owns here now.  This is a OOAK PS Performance Horse,  he did so well at NAN 2010.  He got Champion OF Roping and Reserve Champion Speed Games.    When showing in reining , I make sure the tack and leg protection is correct.  Also, when using a doll make sure it is correct for the event.  Happy showing!

This is a lovely CM resin by Lyn Norbury and painted by Sherry Clayton.  I haven't had the chance to show him yet.  I hope to show him at the Model Horses Live  show put on by Heather Jackson Lane in the Spring.  I think he'll do well in Performance.  I love his style of movement, with his head carriage and his slow long stride, he looks like he would be a smooth ride!  This saddle set is a floral /basket weave combo. Hardware and silver from Rio Rondo.
