Equine Authors

My introduction to this genre was through writers like Marguerite Henry and Walter Farley. Who is writing horse adventures today? Who do you like? 

I’m a proud American Horse Publications (AHP) member, which is the primary source of education, resources, and networking for the equine media community.

In June 2018, I attended my first AHP conference, which was held in Hunt Valley, Maryland. After meeting book authors  Carly Kade, Heather Wallace, and Lisa Wysocky, I was inspired to add this category to the blog. 

Jean Abernethy, the creator of Fergus the Horse, is also an AHP member, and teller of his horse stories. 

Speaking from personal experience, there are also many freelance professionals who write marvelous articles in magazines and online on many different aspects of the horse world.

Below is an article I wrote for 2018's issue 5 of the Arabian Horse Life magazine (the membership publication for the Arabian Horse Association), "Determined Women 'of an Age' Stay in the Saddle."

cover The Perfect Horse

My mother would have called The Perfect Horse a page-turner of a book. Born in 1924, Mom was not one to revisit much, if anything, related to World War II. “I lived it once,” she’d chide. Mom was a horse lover, and for me, her first child and only daughter, she was my horse enabler.…
