Or just talent?
Due to the utterly depressing amounts of snow and rain doubling the barn work, along with the equally daunting amount of homework and test prep, this week’s comic is a retread from back in 2011. I’m sure the logic here is suspect at best (much like telling yourself that those white breeches must have shrunk in the closet…) but it’s at least an attempt to be positive.
Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 33-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 7-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.
