My Writing on love, hope, healing & horses
What I love to write
I write clean contemporary romance with lots of adventure because life is exciting. And of course, an equestrian setting is my favorite.
“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)
what I've always written
I've been writing about horses as long as I've had horses which is almost 60 years. I write for my three websites, plus I guest blog, and I'm always working on teaching manuals, riding lesson plans. In the future, there may even be a cookbook on preparing horse treats from my famous herbal recipes.
learn about about history of riding
As a young teen in New York, I stood at the rail in Madison Square Garden next to the puissance wall the night the record breaking jump of 7'1" was achieved. I'll never forget the sounds as 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. I've never forgotten that moment.
Teaching Riding & training instructors
I grew up on Long Island in New York in the 50s and 60s where I showed equitation and hunter/jumpers. I was was certified by the Potomac Horse Center, MD in 1968 and began teaching more than 50 years ago. I’m the director/owner Fox School of Horsemanship, which was est. 1969. I'm always working on teaching manuals and lesson plans.
