Pick up dropped glove

I saw a trainer I like teach her Mustang to pick up a flower, so I finally got my rear in gear and worked on getting Raven to pick up my glove when dropped on the ground. I started clicking her for just targeting the glove, then waited longer to click for her to give me more interaction w/the glove. She went from pawing to just pushing it around on the ground with her nose.
After three evenings of approximately 15 minutes, she now picks up the glove with minimal shaking and lets me take it from her mouth. Of course, more work is needed to perfect the ‘trick’ so she will do the same while ridden, which is the eventual goal. =)
