Well, at least if you’re a hypochondriac.
So usually I consider myself fairly intelligent. I can generally follow a conversation and read for comprehension; sometimes I even add insightful comments to the fray. Unfortunately all that goes out the window when my horse has maimed himself and the vet is involved. At that point, usually when the vet is explaining what’s up, my brain takes a momentary hiatus and all I hear is potential doom. I’m sure that’s super healthy on my part.
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.
