The Idea of Order: Showing a White Horse…

You must be a masochist.
Presented by:

Admittedly another variant on first world problems.

Despite 14 baths over a three day period, and the fact that your fingers are permanently dyed purple, there’s a good chance your white horse won’t be white the morning of the show. 😉 Most will have managed to find new and unique ways to make themselves some shade of yellow, green, or brown. If you’re lucky, perhaps you can muster a marginally presentable ‘dull beige.’ 😉

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…).
