Renowned horse trainer Aaron Ralston describe..

“It’s a battle of distractions,” said Ralston at the 6th annual Willow Spring Horse Youth Expo last Friday.

The expo was an opportunity for the horse trainer to teach those eager to learn the art of reining a horse. In 2006, Ralston and his former team won a gold medal at the World Equestrian Games in reining. Individually, he nabbed a bronze medal in the same category as well.
