Black Horse Rearing

I write clean contemporary romantic suspense because life is exciting. And of course, an equestrian setting is my favorite. I use my background with horses to create exciting adventures with happily ever-afters for people and their horses. read more

“Bullfight horses are bred for bravery. Eskador’s smart and intuitive. You can’t lie or hide anything with a horse, especially not this one. Right now, he thinks he’s bigger and more powerful than you.” Rylie Davis (quote from my 1st novel)


I write for three websites, plus I guest blog, present courses, and I'm always working on manuals, riding lesson plans, and courses. In the future, there may even be a cookbook on preparing horse treats from my famous herbal recipes. read more


I stood at the rail in the old Madison Square Garden next to the puissance wall the night the record breaking jump of 7'1" was achieved. The horse cantered to the wall, suddenly grunted, and then went silent. Ears appeared at the top of the wall, followed by the horse's knees then the rest of the horse. Silence was followed by a thud as the horse hit the ground and cantered off. The spectators went crazy. Moments like those should never be forgotten. Nor should we forget our rich American horsemanship history. Visit U.S. Horsemanship.

My purpose for the blog to encourage instructors by providing  lesson plans, discussing issues, and commenting on current industry trends. I especially love to focus on basics to help the new instructor. When students are taught with a solid basic foundation, we open the door to a lifetime of riding fulfillment.
