The Idea of Order: The Irony of Equestrian Apparel
More astute observations from the equestrian world.
Alright, so perhaps it is just me who ends up looking like I rolled around in the muck. Perhaps there are those of you out there who manage to stay sparkling clean while at the barn and then look super chic and fashionable when you venture out into public afterwards. Perhaps. I’m going to bet I’m not alone in this though.
Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 31-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 gawky 4-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.
