OH MY GOSH! LOOK AT THESE HANDMADE CINCHES/GIRTHS!! The Wildflower Ranch!






I saw a photo on FB of one of these handmade cinches… immediately I stopped and had to find this artist!  Who was he/she?!  What is the story?!

Well… here you go!…The Wildflower Ranch is the name.

The WILDFLOWER RANCH

I found the website and FB page.  (She also sells wild rags that she hand makes…)

The Wildflower Ranch.

Her name is Lynn and she is fairly new at weaving cinches, but has been an artist forever.   Aren’t these gorgeous?!   And, right now, they are such a deal because she is just starting out selling these although she has been making them for 10 years!  Just consider all the work that goes into a handmade, woven, mohair, specially dyed and complimentary to your saddle pad or any other tack… or just your dream delight, cinch!

HER STORY

Lynn is an animal lover who also loves work with her hands artistically.  One day, as if bopped on the head by Glenda, she got the idea to unravel a woven mohair cinch, to see how it was done.  Why couldn’t horse cinches be more beautiful?

So she created her own.  After a few more, she perfected her own methods and techniques… then she made a few more… practice makes perfect… and a few more… until she got where she is today.

Amazing work!  Beautiful.

GET YOURS!  (no affiliation)

Since these are all one-of-a-kind, get your order in ( 818-472-2326)!  You will chat about what you’d like.  She might ask for your saddle pad or a photo.  You will work together on color and design.  And in a few weeks, you’ll have your own dreamy cinch.

Oh, and she can make breastcollars and wild rags to match…  yup.  The whole schebang.

If I were you, I’d get your order in before she realizes what a great item she has created… And, while these handmade pieces are still affordable!

Right now, they retail (shipping included) for $170 – $225.  I doubt that will last too much longer.  Wow!  Such a deal.

Barrel Racers, kids, rodeo, rodeo court, trail riders, endurance riders…C’Mon down!
