We’ve just got to give Big Props to Sandy Cramer and her registered paint, Raven.
Sandy studied equine science for a few years but now dedicates her time to Knot Just Rope, a specialty tack shop. She makes custom rope tack, including halters and bitless bridles, for customers around the world. Pieces are made especially for each customer, each horse.
The skeleton get-up came about when Cramer, 33, entered a Halloween costume contest last year for horse-and-rider. She put past classes in equine anatomy to good use! Cramer uses horse-friendly acrylic craft paint that washes and wears off with water and time.
The initial painting takes over two hours. Touch ups take about 40 minutes.
The pair have been a big hit and have been treating customers with rides and picture-taking every weekend at no cost.
Cramer said she was especially pleased with her horse’s attitude during all the attention; she’s remained calm and cool
“There are crowds. People waving flags. Pop-ups. Banners flapping. My horse has been excellent.”
Hats off to you, Sandy!
