The Idea of Order: Truer Words Were Never Spoken

Morgan Schmidt explains, “Seriously, I’m not sure what I’d do with all the money I’d have if I didn’t have horses — or even if they would just STOP. BREAKING. THINGS.”

She continues, “I’d probably swim around in it like Scrooge McDuck. Of course I’d probably also be a shell of a person without horses, which would be sort of lame.”

Take it away, Morgane!


Bonus: Morgane’s husband Louis might not be quite as talented an artist as his wife, but he has a lot of heart. Here’s an illustration he made for their one-year anniversary — awwww!!!


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.
