Crafty Equine

I started doing some searching around to see what there was online in the form of equine crafts. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that most of what I found wanted me to buy their horse crafts, but I was able to find some fun items that can be made at home. These ideas come from a variety of websites, from craft sites to horse sites – if you have a great horse craft idea, I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
