mORGAN wagner & ENDO

Internationally known duo Morgan Wagner and Endo, her 17-year old Appaloosa, demonstrate more than riding and liberty - they have mastered the art of teamwork.

 

You see, Endo is completely blind. Due to painful recurrent uveitis, also known as moon blindness, Endo had to have his eyes removed when he was twelve. Initially Endo had one eye removed, but it became obvious that his second eye would have to be removed as well. Knowing this, Morgan began working with him before he was completely blind. She started switching him to voice commands and blindfolding him while asking him to move forward and trust her. Morgan’s training methods worked so well that they began competing in Working Equitation competitions. Now they compete in Master's Level which is the highest level achievable.

Morgan is now pursuing her dreams as a trainer and instructor, inspiring horse owners to strive to deepen the relationship with their horses, and has started a non-profit to rescue and rehab horses. By fulfilling this passion, the horses she saves “will learn skills that ensure they will always be wanted in someone’s barn, no matter where they end up.”

Don’t miss Morgan and Endo at the WA State Horse Expo. The duo will be presenting demonstrations daily, and welcome visitors to the barn. They will also be performing in the Friday night Youth Showcase and popular Saturday Night Extravaganza.

Watching these two perform, you would never know Endo is blind. They are truly amazing.

Evan 

bonner

Evan Bonner was born and raised on a small farm in Port Orchard, Washington and grew up with horses always in his life. It was when he was a young teen that he stumbled upon great horsemen like Pat Parelli and Buck Brannaman and he knew that he had to chase horsemanship. After high school, he began helping people with their horses, starting colts and continued learning the philosophy of true horsemanship. Later in his career, he met and studied with Peter Campbell. Meeting Peter greatly impacted the direction of Evan’s life. He knew that there was something unique about Peter and his ability with horses, and has been chasing that feeling ever since. Evan’s life experiences and study of the teachings of Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt, Peter Campbell and being a true student of the horse have shaped who Evan is as a horseman. Today, Evan spends most days riding horses for clients and conducting weekend horsemanship clinics for the public both offsite and at his and his wife’s facility, the Olympic Glen Arena, located in Port Orchard, Washington. Evan teaches the mechanics of proper riding and operating a horse…but he also teaches people what it means to ‘feel’ of a horse. Once a person experiences a horse responding to their ‘feel’, the opportunity for progress and change is greatly improved. Evan believes that when we become the person that our horse really enjoys…not only do we feel better, but it usually benefits and lifts all other areas of our life including our interaction with our family, friends, and other people.”
