Need Tack for your model horses ?

Do you have a large herd of Breyer Classic, Traditional, Stablemates and Mini Whinnies horses, but not enough tack and accessories? Or maybe your Schleich and Battat horses have no tack at all?

What if you could make your own bridles, saddle blankets, goodies for the barn - scale models of everything  your horse needs?

Maybe you have enough horses and tack, but you want to start entering your horses in photo shows online.

Or you’d like to share your photos with us.

This is the site for you.

We're a brand new site, adding pages here and collecting photos on pinterest.

Why Make Your Own Tack and Accessories?

  • Make tack in any color to suit your horse's personality
  • Save money 
  • Make tack for any sport or event you want
  • Matching sets - one for the mare and one for the foal
  • Make tack in almost any size
  • Choose play quality tack or
  • Show quality tack - better quality than you can buy from some model horse companies and cheaper than you can buy from tack makers

Do you have a broken plastic saddle that looked really good on your favorite Breyer horse?  Or maybe you have a Schleich in a nice pose, but you don't like the color. Or you only have one Breyer rider, but her arm broke off.

You don't have to throw out the saddle or give up on the idea of showing your Schleich just because he's the wrong color to be an Arabian. 

You can fix your horse/ tack/ doll instead and customize it!

Learn how to make a play quality leather  Aussie saddle out of a cheap rubber saddle. And make a Western Saddle with three variations.

In the future, I'll be fixing:

● A gangly old Breyer doll

● A 1:3 scale Battat horse that needs a repaint due to a serious glitter problem

● And I'm going to repaint my black Lipizzaner Schleich foal- because there's already four in the house and they all look the same.

● I'll also tell you ways to get cheap, high quality parts for your show-quality tack- like realistic metal stirrups for a few cents.

We're busy writing pages, taking photos and finding video.  As soon as the Western Events are done, it's on to the English Events.

Each event will have a video showing real horses, suggestions for model horses that are suitable, a discussion of the tack and a link to its own pinterest pages where you can find reference photos.

Videos and PDF files are in production for DIY projects - the first is an exclusive "How to Make a Padded Halter".
