Let’s make a saddle and halter for Breyer Horses! #ModelHorse #Crafts

The image shows a Breyer Rider 8 inch figure on Snowball, a white horse, in a snowy mountain landscape. The horse wears a handmade saddle with bridle and breast collar. The doll or rider figure wears a handmade cotton shirt made of lightweight blue plaid fabric and a pair of denim jeans along with standard ankle-high boots. She holds the reins with a look of easy riding rhythm.

Years ago, when my oldest daughter was in middle school, she loved Breyer model horses. She followed in her mother’s footsteps and enjoyed sewing for her Breyer Rider dolls, and she also made lovely blankets for her horses.

But I had forgotten until recently that she also made some tutorials on how to create your own halter with a lead rope, and how to make your own saddles.

She really was a “chip off the old block,” as they say.

By the way, she’s now studying marketing at ISU, and she will be done in the next year or so. And, by applying her talents as a marketer, she helped me design my new logo!

Logo image for ChellyWood.com shows a bodice pattern with the name "ChellyWood" embedded within it.

Even as a little girl, she was super talented and understood what the audience of model horse collectors and model horse lovers wanted to learn when she created her videos.

So today I’m giving a shout-out to Emily Teapot (my daughter’s online pseudonym)!
