The Idea of Order: Communication…
… is difficult.
Ah, if only our equine partners could understand language and possessed verbal skills. While I’m positive I’d rather not have to hear how measly their rations are or how they’d prefer not to work today thank-you-very-much, it would be nice if we could just explain to them verbally exactly what seemingly insane thing we’re trying to get them to do. I’m sure it would clear up quite a bit for all of us involved. 😉
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 now beastly 5-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.
