Here's a picture of me taking a shot. Photo taken by Lucia Roda, the hostess for the event:
I wasn't able to take my horses as I'd originally planned, but we still had a fantastic time. This was my third Horse Archery clinic. I was extremely excited when the teacher of the clinics, announced that he would like to have a bow building clinic in the near future. He was asking if anyone would be interested and I was almost jumping up and down. I want my own bow and arrows so badly and I have always, ALWAYS wanted to learn how to make a Plains tribe bow.
Other exciting news from yesterday... In the past I have mentioned my desire to create an original resin horse to benefit the preservation of Spanish Mustangs. This cause is very near to my heart as I own one of these rare, incredible horses. Well, yesterday I was told by someone involved in the preservation of these horses that they would like me to make a resin horse for their project! I will reveal more details as I know them, but I know right now that it will be modeled after a gorgeous dun Spanish Mustang stallion. It will be the size of a Traditional Breyer - approximately 9 inches tall. Once a pose has been decided on and I have some reference pictures, I'll get busy sculpting!
I'm very excited!
Today my husband and I are going up into the Black Hills to do some exploring via Jeep and our hiking shoes. It looks like it's going to be a beautiful day for it.
