The Idea of Order: Showing in July…
Taking ‘warm’ to a whole new level.
Going to a horse show in July is not for the weak, nevertheless, I firmly believe that you don’t get to complain about everything (because then you’re just being a jerk). And that being said, given my hatred for winter and all things cold, you will never hear me whine and mince about over the heat. I will, however, concede that it has been a bit ‘warm’ lately.
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.
