The Idea of Order: Fat or Fluffy?

It’s a legitimate question.
Presented by:

Ah, winter and the holidays: a time of wonderfully frozen tundra complete with copious amounts of food and significantly less motivation to do much other than eat it. ;)

It’s a time of wonderment: Is your horse just fluffy from being frozen or fat from not getting worked? Did those breeches feel snug because you layered or because you’ve decided pumpkin pie is a legitimate food group? So.many.questions. ;)

Go Riding!

Morgane Schmidt is a 36-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 9-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.
