The Idea of Order: Showing in July

AKA: Touring Dante’s Inferno.

Presented by:

Summer Showing…
You might as well take a trip to visit Hades…particularly if you live here in Florida. 😅🥵
Even though July showing is not for the weak (or those with zero heat tolerance and the good sense not to melt their brain cells), I firmly believe that you don’t get to complain about everything because then you’re just being a jerk. That being said, given my hatred for winter and all things cold, you will never hear me whine about the heat — make snarky remarks and inappropriate references about it, yes. Complain, no.🤔
I will, however, concede that it has been a bit ‘warm’ lately. 😉😆😅
Morgane Schmidt is, among many things, an equestrian who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. Author of Life with Horses Is Never Orderly, she knows all about the madness that comes with the equine territory, having owned and competed horses in eventing and dressage for years. A lifelong fan of the classic equestrian cartoons penned by internationally renowned artist Norman Thelwell, she began her own comic series in 2011, sharing deftly funny reflections on life with horses on Horse Nation as well as her personal website. A native Floridian, she spent a decade in Reno, NV, where she was able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless (she has since regained her sense and moved back to the Florida swamp). Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She has completed 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 12-year-old Dutch gelding, and Milona DG, a 6 year old KWPN chestnut mare (you can make your own inferences there…).
