I didn't come back from the show empty handed and afer a whole afternoon (which resulted in my black (!) jeans being completely covered in mohair) spent hairing them, I can now proudly present Simba and Pirate. :D
I also made them up some tack today. Pirate found himself with a nice plain snaffle bridle (actually a bit of a cheat as I only needed to make the browband as the rest of it was found lost in the tack drawer! lol)
Simba however got something a little more interesting. Since he'll be broken to ride this year I thought he might need lungeing at times to take the edge off...
So no prizes for guessing what I made this evening!
The sidereins are elasticated, as is the girth.
