Alexis Garrigues also known as Mistress Annisa Gabrielli
Elisabetta Annisa Gabrielli is a 14th Century noblewoman who enjoys developing a partnership with her horse, properly dressed. She is the 2015-16 Guildhead for the Madrone Equestrian Guild.
Alexis spent her teenage years volunteering at the Woodland Park Zoo's pony ring, a wonderful opportunity for a city kid to spend time with horses. There she learned to utilize her innate stubbornness to good advantage with Welsh and Shetland ponies. As part of the zoo's 4-H club she learned to care for horses, ride, and drive, and was able to pass on those skills training new volunteers. A few years ago she re-connected with horses in the SCA, and is now the proud owner of Duchess, a Percheron cross mare, and co-owner of Darshan, a Friesian cross gelding. She also loves fabric and has taught classes on medieval riding attire and making caparisons and helmet covers.
