A Guide School Student's Journal


elk hunting training

DAY 7 - Sunday

Same routine. Wrangled at 6:00, breakfast at 6:30, and class at 7:00. Spent about an hour at the hitching rails learning 10 basic knots and hitches. Just hope I can remember them and their applications. Cody says for every one missed on tonight's quiz, we have to tie it correctly 20 times in a row before we're done for the night.

About mid-morning, we started shoeing (Again!). We were all sore this morning, but it went pretty well. Most of us got our requirement done by the end of the day. Each student must shoe at least 1 horse and 1 mule. (Any that didn't finish today will have to make it up later.)

We topped off the evening with a great supper and a little entertainment watching the instructors restrain and shoe a couple of younger horses.
