The Idea of Order: Horses Just Wanna Have Fun

Oftentimes, at their owner’s expense. Prepare for a laugh courtesy of our illustrious illustrator Morgane Schmidt!


UPDATE: In response to Morgane’s illustration, reader Laura Ann Kosiorek sent us these photos with the note, “Rugby, an OTTB, would not leave Kevin alone when he was trying to fix the fence next to the barn… even with the sound of the power tools.”



Go Riding.

Morgane Schmidt is a 29-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. This year she was able to complete her USDF bronze medal and is now pursuing her silver. Generally speaking her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a gawky three 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.
