I think we have all been there. You know, when you’re fishing around for something in your purse or pocket and suddenly realize you’re about to expose just how deep the depths of your equine depravity are. I mean honestly, how many “normal” people do you know who have multiple pairs of pants with pockets crusted shut from dryer-melted cookie/sugar goo? I’ll give you a hint, none. No one else does that.
It’s OK though, we all have each other.
Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 33-year-old teacher/artist/dressage trainer/show announcer/ who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. A native Floridian, she now lives in Reno, NV, where she’s been able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless. Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She was recently able to complete her USDF bronze and silver medals and is currently working on her gold. Generally speaking her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a now beastly 7-year-old Dutch gelding, and Stormy, her friend’s nearly all white paint gelding with a penchant for finding every mud hole and pee spot in existence.
