Don’t make me use it.
Almost all equestrians (or dog owners … or maybe even parents of small human children) have a “Hey, stop that” voice. You know, the one reserved specially for those times when they’re not listening to a single thing you say and sounds as if you’ve been briefly possessed by someone from one of the lower few circles of Hell.
It’s effective. Particularly when you have a horse with the attention span of a goldfish with ADHD and the world is ending.
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.
