Is adult supervision required?

Yes. Some kits require the use of craft knifes or power tools. In addition some supplies (such as glues and leather dyes) require proper ventilation. An adult should supervise all crafting projects.

Kits are designed for ages 12 and above. However, each child is different. Because of this, guardians are responsible for proper use and supervision by any child under 18 in their custody.

What scales are Traditional and Classic?

Traditional Size is equivalent to 1/9 to 1/10 Scale. This is abbreviated TR.

Classic Size is equivalent to 1/12 Scale. This is abbreviated CL.

Can I use one kit to make different scales of tack?

The tack kits are written for one specific size. In my tackmaking, I have found this to be the best way. When I go to smaller and smaller scales, construction techniques change. If that happens, my smaller scale kits will have a slightly different set of instructions. There will also be a slightly different set of supplies included in the kit.

You will achieve the best results in your tackmaking by purchasing the correct size kit for the project you are currently working on.

However, customers with some prior skill may be able to alter the patterns to change scales. It is more work for you than purchasing the correct size with all those decisions worked out already, but it can be done. Which you enjoy doing most is up to you.

How hard are the Kits?

Kit Difficulty Ratings

Each kit listing has the difficulty rating. Below are the definitions for the various ratings.

Pre-Beginner: Super easy. No previous tack-making experience needed and equipment list is short. Good kid's project, though as always, adult supervision should be present.

Beginner: A good starting project.

Intermediate: A detailed project. It is recommended that you have made several different types of bridles, halters, and accessories, including more difficult types like Snaffles or Weymouths.

Advanced: Detailed projects requiring skills learned at lower levels and the desire to learn advanced techniques even if they are hard.

Semi-Pro Status: A tack project where the design is complicated and requires the construction of many different parts. These projects expect you to know about skiving, buckle preparation, strap decorations, etc. Certain pre-requisites may be recommended with the kit listing.
