Remember when you were first starting to learn to drive, and were just getting the hang of the controls, the steering wheel, the brakes, looking out ahead, planning ahead (driving defensively) and just generally 'getting used to it'? In those early experiences, you wouldn't have wanted to just be thrown out onto the interstate with traffic going 70mph. After awhile though, it's no problem. It's second nature, and you just needed to get comfortable with it. Galloping a horse is just like that.
