I'm a big fan of people watching. At airports, lobbies or while sitting in traffic, I love imagining where all the interesting people I see are going and where they're coming from. Yet, while making up stories in my head to entertain my curiosities is fun, it's even more fun to find out the truth.

Case in point: If you saw pathology resident Sara Wobker in the halls of UNC Hospitals, you might not realize that she loves riding horses. To be more specific, Wobker performs a form of horse training called dressage. The International Equestrian Foundation refers to dressage as, "the highest expression of horse training." One of the main skills of a dressage rider is the ability to make the horse respond on command, but seemingly without any effort. While many of the intricacies of dressage are subtle, I don't think you'll have any trouble seeing Wobker's love for riding and her love for her horse, Brew. Enjoy this month's installment of real doctors, real people.
