Great day!

I know it's a small accomplishment...

I taught apollo how to bow today. It took me about 5 minutes.. Yes..really 5 minutes and he learned the word bow and the hand signal down.

I'm so happy! I think after we fully perfect bowing, kneeling is next. :)

Is it really? Only one person at the barn was impressed. I figured it wasn't that great because no one else paid it much attention when I showed them. :(

I was happy though. :)

some people may just not be interested in trick training, if i could get miover to do it id be bragging lmao, i really think what u taught him is huge, anything u teach a horse urself is HUGE, heck i cant even get miover to focus on me for 2 minutes LOL if i can make him focus on me for a full circle in a lunge to me thats huge!


if ur happy thats all that matters, ur horse obviously respects u and trust u for him to bow

A 14 year old is teaching me how to post. She laughs at me all the time, I'm much better now, but at first she was "omg he is so smooth it's easy to post on him"
I know how you feel! Haha

Hey, 14 year old can know more than you think!!
I am 15 and my mom says I am better with horses than her - and I think I am too. And she is a really good horseman too, awesome with horses. But I don't think I ma that good! haha!

Good job on bowing!! I would try that with my horses, but they are too old and are stiff sometimes. haha!
