Possibly the most depressing of them all…
Simple fact. I didn’t want to believe this but, alas, it’s true. Particularly if you have an athletic equine partner to keep you on your toes (or bouncing gracefully out of the tack if you don’t keep yourself from being a hot mess up there). This is almost as depressing as the fact that I can’t live on white bread and sugar without turning into the stay puff man (but The Husband? Yeah, he lives on straight sugar and still manages to avoid any repercussions).
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.
