Gibson and the Apocalypse: Futile Battles


It’s important to know when to pick your battles, especially when the world is ending and actual literal battles can pop up before you’ve even had your morning coffee. Sometimes you’ve got to keep fighting the Good Fight. But just as importantly, sometimes you need to know when to graciously admit defeat.

And if you happen to be an equestrian who owns a horse with a predominantly light coat color, you’re already quite familiar with the notion that some battles can just never be won.

Jenny Kammerer is a professional artist, video producer and frustrated Philadelphia sports fan who’s been in the saddle since the age of four. When she was 16, she met her Paint/QH/Draft cross Gibson (aka Guitar Solo) as a green two-year-old, and quickly settled into the training side of equestrianism, drawing inspiration from the techniques of Pat Parelli and other natural horsemanship teachers. Known for most of her childhood as both the awkward artsy one and the weird horse girl, she always seemed destined to draw nonsensical horse cartoons. In addition to her independent illustration work, she currently teaches painting classes at Painting With A Twist and produces short-form documentaries that can be seen on www.Horse.TV.
