The Idea of Order Guest Comic: Beast of Burden?

AKA “The Husband?”

Presented by:


There are many aspects of the equestrian world that The Husband has come to understand, but he still has difficulty wrapping his head around this whole “dressage” thing. He’s also pretty sure that my horses have me more trained than I do them (and he may be correct on that).

Go Riding! In Fancy Circles!

Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 32-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.
