From Morgane Schmidt:
There was frost on the mounting block this am… my life is over. OK, that might be a bit melodramatic (even for me). But seriously, I’m ready to skip winter.
And in that vein, this week’s comic! And for the record, I HAVE done this (picture to follow).
Disclaimer: I know, I know. File this under #PrivilegedEquestrianProblems. Seriously though, I’m not making light of the Ebola crisis, just trying to poke more fun at the awfulness that body clipping is.
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.
