I did as I was told. The nurse was listing many symptoms that she thought I might have, if I had a concussion. “I’m going to shine a light in your eyes, and all you need to do is look at me,” She said with a concerning voice.

Horses can't intuit the reasons for bits, reins and stirrups: it's when horse and rider work together that they construct a language for communicating. Training your horse is important if you want to work together to achieve anything—whether it's basic riding or more complicated activities such as…
