Those of us who love horses have a tendency to be crafty as well, and interestingly enough the two can collide very nicely. There are tons of different horse crafts out there, from DIY items for horse people to horse theme, well – everything.
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!
