The Idea of Order: ‘Man’s Best Friend?’

There’s a reason horses don’t have that moniker…

So this isn’t entirely true of ALL horses or dogs, but certainly many of them. Wilson is a bit more like a dog than most, but even he gives me side eye when he thinks he’d rather not do anything in the realm of work. 🤔😉

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…).
