Or, “crap sketchy horse traders say.”
Define “ride.” And is your grandma a professional bronc rider? My dad always said never to brag on a horse because he would always let you down. While that seems to be perhaps overly pessimistic, I can’t help but think there’s a grain of truth to it. Not because horses want to let us down, but because Murphy’s Law is a force to be reckoned with.
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.
