Showmanship Halter

Yesterday I finished off this gorgeous Showmanship halter commission piece

No automatic alt text available.

This piece was ordered by a customer and I think you'll agree it looks lush

No automatic alt text available.

These are one of my favourite things to make and they aren't expensive, I've had great success with my Western Showmanship performance entries, not an expensive thing to do but executed well it can be a really effective entry.

If you would like to order a halter they are just £20.00 each and available in a variety of standard designs and colours (I'm happy to order in extra leather to do something really fancy if you like, remember that cool purple one I did earlier in the year?)

Anyway you can order them here:

Not a massive fan of this guy, he almost looks flocked in that colour! Now that would be cool!

Win a Custom Leopard Spot Foal

Well as it's spotty month I thought I would offer a pretty special prize.

Now I haven't painted him yet but I'm sure he will be gorgeous. The winning foal will be miniature, Stablemate or Paddock Pal scale. He will be leopard spot in colour but that's the only hint you are getting!

To win him you are going to need to do a bit of writing (I know work right *urgh*) but don't worry it will be fun :D

You can write either an essay or a story, it could be a real life tale or it could be a fictional story based on your own model horse yard.

The theme is: Your Story

The story must be in some way model horse related (either your own story with model horses or a fictional story based on your model horse yard - or anything else that you think fits).

The best entry will be featured on the Chestnut Ridge website. We may also feature pieces on our Blog, website and magazine. So you must be comfortable with your writing being available publicly. If you submit images with your piece make sure they are your own and you are happy with them being published.

For full information on how to enter please visit our website here:

Here is a cute little foal painted a few years ago as a fun example :D
