Hang your backpack on the saddle knob.
When the camel stands up or sits down, lean back again and hold the reins (mori) tightly.
Always hold the reins when riding, as you will be rocked gently back and forth.
When turning right pull the right rein gently into the right direction, when turning left pull the left one to the left.
For galloping pull both reins together slowly and give the camel a slight kick on both sides with your legs.
To make the camel stop pull both reins backward quickly.
To make the camel sit down pull both reins and mouth the word "Jhu Jhu".
