When I dream, I dream big so it should come as no surprise that the wheelchair and ramp weren't the only items in my "therapeutic riding box." There was also this original finish German Sheperd who I'd bought with the intention of turning into a guide dog.The problem in those days was reference material. I had only the vaguest idea how a guide dog harness was constructed, and good clear pictures were few and far between.
Fortunately, that is no longer an issue.
A quick google search yielded more photos than even I could possibly use. Hurray!
This morning I broke out the tackmaking tools and this is the happy result.
Oh, that was fun!

during her time in storage. New paintwork is still very much in progress)
As an aside, I also spent a bit of time fixing the wheelchair. I didn't know how to remove the WWF logo when I bought it, but my bag of tricks is a lot deeper these days.
There's still some work to do to move this from good intentions performance to actual live show performance. Despite that, I am optimistic that this will in fact make it to the show ring sometime in 2012!
