while Brian appreciates company on the road, he really enjoys
using Rivendell's horse-drawn lawnmower for developing his own
sense of feel. There's no room on the mower for his
instructor - she must watch him from a distance. It is
just Brian & Missy.
Story: Brian was a
truck driver - a teamster - until he was involved in an accident
that left him brain damaged. Brian mastered riding at a walk,
but the trot caused too much spasticity, and he would jerk his
hands, bringing any horse from a trot to a walk or even a
halt. As an adult, Brian was finding this very
frustrating. So we offered him a chance to learn to
drive. And he is bragging that he is a "teamster"
