Starting out I made a girth of leather lace with buckles, changed the buckles to cut down on bulk. I need to make a longer girth next time. I didn't really take pictures of this step... But here's the finished girth with the lower skirt.
I used rio rondo d rings for the front girth holding because they're flat to cut down on bulk under the stirrups. I used jump rings for the back girth. I also put on my corner plate! I'll show how all this is done later.
Here's it on the horse.
Next I made a tree, forgot to take pictures of how I did that. Even I am surprised at how well it turned out!
Then I proceeded to build the seat, put it on and suddenly remember stirrups exist. Then I had to take the seat off and put stirrups on and put the seat back on.. :P
I also put the upper skirt on and side panels and then I remembered to take a picture.
PS. I added more silver after that...
