I wasn’t much interested in math or science in high school. I wanted to study art and writing; I failed to see the value in taking trigonometry or calculus or chemistry.
Looking back, though, I wish I had paid more attention in physics class. Little did I realize how applicable the laws of science would be to horse sports—particularly when riding in a crowded indoor arena during the winter. There’s nowhere else I can think of where one can observe so many natural laws in action.
