The Idea of Order: Pony ‘Coal?’

Somehow worse than actual coal.

I’m fairly certain if Santa were to poll my horses they would all agree that I’ve been particularly naughty this year (what with all that riding and training business, muzzles, spurs, and depriving them of the copious amounts of food they believe they deserve). Guess it’s a good thing they don’t get to voice their opinions.

Go Riding!

Morgane Schmidt is a 37-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…).
