Endo is a blind horse that does performances. He can do everything that a horse with sight can do. He travels, does trail rides and does liberty work performances and also takes part in competitions. He is a crowd-puller at expos and has done performances and exhibited his versatility and trainability in and across the US and Canada. Endo and his owner Morgan have been star performers in a number of outdoor theatre shows.
The story of Endo is really heartwarming. Endo has belonged to Morgan ever since she chose him. Morgan was only 13 years old when her grandmother let her pick a horse for herself. Morgan felt Endo had a different presence and chose him when he was just a few months old.
Morgan and Endo both were complete amateurs and learned everything on their own. Morgan is entirely self-taught and learned how to train Endo through trial and error. She created her own technique and used it to train Endo even when he lost his sight. It is a difficult situation when an animal loses his sight.
Endo was just eight when Morgan noticed that he was squinting a lot. He was then diagnosed with Recurrent Uveitis, cataracts, and glaucoma. Morgan tried her best to lessen his pain by not training him during the day time and avoiding flare-ups and irritation in his eye. She would only take him out during the night. But nothing seemed to improve his state. When his right eye ruptured the vet had to remove his eye.
After the vet’s prognosis, Morgan realized that her other eye could not be saved. She started preparing him for total blindness by training him blindfolded. Endo’s trust in Morgan made it easy for Morgan to train him. Morgan ensures that Endo and everybody around him are safe and their performance is a delight to watch.
