Never say die.
Equestrians are some of the most determined, resourceful, stubborn, tough, strong, stubborn, persistent, and did I say stubborn(??) people imaginable. We may skip parties, graduation ceremonies, vacations, and even be late for our own weddings but come hell or high water nothing short of death is going to keep us out of the saddle. (Even if perhaps it should…)
Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 34-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.
