    None of us are that perfect. Our brains are not built that way. We're built to categorize, and quickly.

About quietann
Location:
Andover, MA
Occupation:
Biostatistician/Data Manager
Biography:
Born in 1964, returned to riding in 2006 after a 25 year break. My original goal was to event -- at a low level -- before my body gave out. It did... so I now focus on enjoying my horse (a palomino Morgan mare born 1998) and dabbling in dressage and trail riding.
