I think that is the most uncomfortable looking stiching pony I've ever seen.

Thanks for the pattern! This one is a bit bare bones... You can tell materials would not have been terribly plentiful when these plans were created, but useful nonetheless! I have a friend who has a wood shop in his basement, and said I can make a stitching pony for myself. I've been compiling pictures and measurements from various patterns, and I think I'm getting close to being ready to start.

Any suggestions on what makes a good 'pony'?

Thanks for sharing, I did try to ask my Mother make me a stitching horse or pony for me by looking at the plan, guess what my mother said:" I will sponsor you $100USD so you can buy one from Japan." >.<!

Making stitching horse or pony by ourselves is not going to happen in Singapore or Hong Kong >.<! Because we canít find the right material or tools for it.

Ps. We can't even find any leather shop here in Singapore ... sigh...

How do the leather working class do here in Singapore, the teacher will bring the students to Hong Kong and make a one stop group shopping in Sumshupo for leather and accessories, very sad yeah?

(and yes I brought the pony from Japan >.<)

In Al Stolhman's The Art of Hand Sewing Leather, there is a layout on the last 3 pages of the book. I'm in the process of building mine, just waiting on the latigo strap and some buckles. The entire 1/4 horse as it's called can be built for $60 or less depending on your materials.

I know I am late to this party but thought you might like to see an original. I bought this leather horse, as I call it, when I was doing leatherwork in Montana in the late 1970s. At the time it was an antique, and now, 35 years later, it is still doing the job and doing it well. You can see that I currently have rope holding the legs in place because I take it apart to carry it to shows where I demonstrate handstitching. One poster here thought the plans for the horse looked very uncomfortable but I can tell you that I can sit on this horse for 8 hours or more and be perfectly comfortable.

Actually, the plans in the document at the top of this thread are pretty close. Mine has two sets of rungs on the legs but otherwise looks like it might do the trick.

I found this pattern for a stitching pony.  It was actually pretty easy to build.  The hardware ran me about $6 and the lumber and leather I already had as scraps.  I built this and I have used it allot.  The only problem I ran into is being in the USA I am not used to using metric measurements but it worked out.
