Browse through our portfolio of beautiful custom made hand-woven Saddle Blankets. All of our blankets are made by hand by Christina Bergh at the Brown Cow Studio in Santa Fe using the finest pure Merino or Mohair wool yarns.

Because all of the blankets shown on this page are examples of blankets that are custom woven after you place your order, we can custom weave any of our patterns in any color scheme you wish, or we can even custom design a totally new pattern for you.

We dye all of our yarn by hand in our studio, which means we can even custom match colors if you want your saddleblanket to coordinate with your clothing or tack. Send us a sample of the colors to match to, and we can match it. There is an extra charge for color matching due to the time involved in formulating the dye to match.

Call or email for details on custom ordering your blanket. Remember that all of our blankets are personally woven by master textile artist Christina Bergh here in our Santa Fe, New Mexico studio.

Most of the saddle blankets shown below are examples of blankets we have woven in the past. All are sold as custom orders now because many customers ask to make changes in color or design. Each is one of a kind; due to the handmade nature of these beautiful blankets, no two are exactly alike. Custom orders currently require four weeks to fulfill due to volume of orders.

Colors shown may vary in the final product due to the individual handmade nature of these blankets. We dye all of our yarn by hand, one batch at a time so colors can vary slightly from blanket to blanket. Remember also that computer monitors very in their color rendering. Please request a set of yarn samples when ordering your blanket. We're happy to make them and send them out before weaving your custom made saddle blanket to ensure you get exactly the colors you desire.

Order your blanket online or call us at 505-988-4893. When calling, order with the item number under the blanket, or tell us what you envision and we can create it.
