Regina Mayer's parents wouldn't buy her a horse so she went into the family barn, picked out cow and cultivated a loving, respectful relationship. Today, Regina climbs upon Luna's back and engages in a modified version of eventing near the Austrian border.
"At the start, I'd walk with her for hours and at some point I realised you can ride a cow like a horse. I had to trick Luna and lure her with carrots and sugar. Now she is jumping a metre."
Cows, they're just us.
