Great ride today!

I rode apollo for about an hour today. Absolutely perfect! I've successfully taught him his left , right and stop bit-less, and voice commands. I told him trot, and he trotted, and woah, and he stopped. He stood completely still at the mounting block.. He was just perfect. :)
(We've Beene working on voice commands since I got him, and directions for about 1 week)

I did get frustrated because he is still terrified of the spray bottle and the hose. Last week we worked in the hose for an hour, and I thought we conquered it. But today it felt like we were back at square one. :(

It'll take a while to help him get past his fears.
