You are a dedicated horse owner, but when you reflect back on your horse's history, the days blend together. Your recollection of training sessions, experiences, and observations is not what it could be.
We know from studies on the process of recall that each time the mind constructs a past event, the brain networks change in ways that actually alter the memory.
Training professionals have long dealt with the challenge of improving their students' retention after the training experiences. This issue was studied by German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus in 1885. His discovery was that 70% information is forgotten within 24-48 hours.
