Last night wasn't terrible, but it certainly wasn't good, either. I feel as though our progress towards the canter has taken a huge leap backwards. It's discouraging. But, we'll take today off. A break for a big black beastie and a break for the human's thighs. (Truth be told, I rode them to their limit, last night. I wondered if this was the muscle failure my brother has been talking about.) (Just kidding, I don't really think that trying to get my horse to canter is anywhere near the kind of physical training my brother has been doing in the Army.)
I have to remember that this is a process, for both of us. And that although it's frustrating training a baby (ok, she's not a baby anymore, she's 8) I'd probably be bored with a made horse.
But sometimes the want for a horse that just CANTERS overpowers all of that other crap.
But, enough about that. Tonight I'm going to polish the growing pile of earrings (that stopped growing when I ran out of 20g wire for the ear wires...more on the way!) and work on an order for these:
I love these rings so much that they are on my list of things to make for myself. They started the stacking pair thing for me -- now I'm always on the lookout for little stones that are interesting together.
I have 5 pairs of earrings left to start and/or finish after these and my goal is to have all of them done by this weekend. And then...onto the necklaces. Time is running out quickly!
I have also added this ring to the SALE section:
