The Idea of Order: Equestrian Tan?
I guess it’s a tan of sorts…
Living in breeches can put a serious damper on your bathing suit plans. Which is one reason I try to avoid most tan/color and douse my arms and face in a gallon or so of sunscreen daily (that and the fact that I’d like to avoid looking like a walnut when I’m 35).
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 10-year-old Dutch gelding, and Milona DG, a 3 year old KWPN chestnut mare (you can make your own inferences there…).
