Subject: [RC] Custom made tack?
Does anyone know where I can have a custom tack item made? My
husband uses a racing-style breastplate on a Sharon Saare saddle. It is
neither English nor western; has one simple band across the chest, attaches to
the saddle with straps that buckle into the D-rings (I would add snaps for
quick convenience), and has a thinner strap that goes over the neck at the
withers, holding the breast part up into position. Complicated
description for a simple item. I would like it made in brown beta
biothane, and have the breast part made of something without harsh edges,
rather like the Wintec English leathers. Actually, on of those would be
just about right for the breast strap...about the right width and without cut
edges. They become shiny with use, however. Who of all the tack
suppliers makes custom items?
