The Idea of Order: 4:00 PM, You Say?
I’m just going to nope on over here…
Those of you who ride in the evenings after work have probably been here. I’m fairly certain this is one of a horse’s greatest disappointing moments. It’s 4:00, diner time, and here comes The Small Predator with silly notions like riding and work instead of dinner. Poor, abused quadruped…who gets room service, maid service, health care, and 23 hours a day to do as he pleases. Such a sad existence.
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.
