The Idea of Order: Transitions Are Hard

… both on horses and between seasons.

 Presented by:

While I am incredibly relieved that spring is on the way and there’s an end in sight to the cold misery that is winter, I could seriously do without the mud, snud, and hair. I’m also hating these last minute storms winter is tossing at me in one final attempt at ruining my life. Ah well, soon enough it will be over 100.

Go Riding!

Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 34-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.
