This lace face plate browband was a great accessory to the destrier costume and I loved that I could pick the gem color to match! We used it on our mini even though it is made for a horse or draft; it still worked. Very easy to attach and also quite soft; besides the sound of the velcro ripping when we were getting ready to attach to her halter I don't think she minded it at all.

The Robin Hood was absolutely perfect for our old paint gelding, well-made and the fit is just great! We are excited for him to show this off to the kids. It also came with a red feather that fits so nicely in the cap, I just forgot to put it in when having him try it on. This costume would be a really great Holiday Elf costume for our Christmas photoshoot - I'm seriously contemplating getting a few more for the rest of our little herd!

Item shipped fast and is exactly what I wanted. The very tip of the horn did snap off in shipping but it is hardly noticeable.

Amazing shop to buy from. Speedy shipping and honest about when it was going to arrive. The hat arrived in perfect condition and was very well made. I will definitely be buying from this shop again!

Can’t wait to try this on my man Sundance! He’s a beautiful black mule. Using all of the hats I purchased in our Christmas photo shoot with our mules. Excellent quality and will be watching for more.
My Buddy Bling started as an excuse to spend time with our horses doing "field testing."
My Buddy Bling LLC, started in the summer of 2012. Our blond, blue-eyed mare, who thinks she is a princess, wanted more adornment than just glitter hoof polish, so I tried to find her some jewelry. When searches pulled up almost nothing, I decided to make her jewelry and one thing led to another. I started a new enterprise -- making jewelry, accessories and costumes for horses. Most are OOAK (hand-made One-Of-A-Kind) and extremely time-consuming -- and fun -- to make.
Our horses and our friends' horses are my models and field testers. The accessories and costumes are field tested to be sturdy, but they are NOT tack and should be taken off the horse immediately after riding, and never left on an unattended horse. Unattended horses have a way of rubbing, tasting, and scraping off their jewelry and outfits.
As time permits, I include some of my polymer clay and needle felted creatures and all sorts of other gifts for horses and riders. I am a member of the Professional Doll Makers Art Guild and Teddy Bears Artists and Friends. I am a one-woman shop.
I am an animal rights advocate and actively try to help animals. As such, I am vegetarian, volunteer at the local horse rescue, and try not to sell anything in my shop that caused an animal to die - no real leather or real fur sold here.
Buddy is the shop's namesake, and is a good, ol' boy. He's a Tennessee Walker whose major interests are eating and hanging out with people.
Ginger is the inspiration for the shop, and is my top model. She is a blond, blue-eyed princess and boss of the pasture. She's a Missouri Fox Trotter who looks good in anything she wears.
Wile E Coyote
Wile E Coyote is our field tester. If he says an item is sturdy and comfortable, then I list it. He is a Tennessee Walker, full of mischief and loves to make us laugh.
Model In Training
Grace is a Mustang who was a lead mare in her wild herd. She is a mixture of sweetness and nitroglycerin and much smarter than me.
If you have a design in mind, contact me, and I will see if I can make it for you. Your equine buddies will love the extra attention their jewelry and accessories brings them.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about any of my work. If you see a design you would like in another color or custom size, I'll be happy to work with you.

Frequently asked questions
How do I find what I need? How do I order the right size?
Shop for your equine in one of two ways! Either browse my shop OR contact me and I can send you the links to what you are looking for. I have a FULL shop and know that it can sometimes be hard to find what you need.
Not sure what sizes to order? Contact me with your questions and I will be happy to explain how to measure your steed.
I enjoy making EXACTLY the right accessories and costumes for your equine needs and after a consultation and quote, can create a custom listing for your horse, mini, pony, draft or long ears.
I am an international customer. What shipping services do you use, and what about duty?
Orders are shipped USPS. All customs duty fees and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer. I do not mark international orders as "gift", or with any value other than the amount you pay; I could face heavy fines and/or lose my business license.
YOU are responsible for all TAXES and DUTY owed. Please check with YOUR countries laws about restrictions and thresholds. You may want to consider keeping your order values low. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs or the post office.
The tracking says my order was delivered by I don’t have it. Help?
It doesn't happen often but packages are sometimes mis-delivered. We recommend that you check the following:
-members of your household
-local post master
-if you are international customer, check it isn’t sitting in customs waiting for duty to be paid.
If you are not successful in recovering your package, please contact me and I will work with you to find it.
Has my order shipped yet?
Because of the nearly endless options, most handmade items are MADE TO ORDER and may take a few days to make; 1- 5 days are typical. Please allow more time for large or custom orders. However, if you are having a "upcoming event emergency", let me know as I always set aside a little time each day just in case. If your order is TIME SENSITIVE, please let me know in the notes to seller box at checkout, or send me a convo, and I will work to meet it. Shipping upgrades are available. When you order is complete, I will send you an email with shipping details including the domestic tracking number/international customs number.
Custom and personalized orders
Custom and Personalized orders are not refundable unless I made an error and sent you the wrong item. Thank you.
Care instructions for items with feathers!
If feathers have a "wave" from shipping them, simply brush the feather barbs out with a soft bristle tooth brush *sweet the fibers* - you can also hold the feathers over hot steam to make them straight again. Craft feathers and hair feathers are more durable than one thinks.
DO NOT leave feathered items out in your barn or tack room. Every bug and varmint in the world loves to eat feathers and they will do so overnight. I know!
