About Me

I have been writing about horses professionally since 1993, but I have loved both horses, riding, and writing since first grade. I love writing and editing so much I went back to graduate school (for the second) time to get a master’s certificate in professional writing. I already had a B.A. in English and an M.A. in Teaching, but I wanted to improve my writing and editing skills for writing in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) fields in this digital era.

Riding and Writing

When you hire me to write a technical or mass market article about horses, you get someone with a lifetime of experience riding and showing. I understand what makes the horse world go round, whether at a small home-based barn, an elite trainer’s facility, or a large horse show like Devon, Rolex Kentucky, or AQHA Congress.

See my portfolio.

I have a wealth of subject-matter experts in the equestrian world who add credibility to the article, including:

  • riders
  • trainers
  • farriers
  • veterinarians
  • grooms
  • photographers.

Some of the people I have worked with or interviewed in the past include:

  • George Morris, Olympic medalist
  • Denny Emerson, Olympic medalist
  • Peter Wylde, Olympic and World Championships medalist
  • Jessica Ransehousen, Olympian, dressage judge and trainer
  • Joyce Harman, DVM
  • Kip Rosenthal, top hunter-jumper trainer
  • Pam Baker, top hunter-jumper trainer
  • Ray Texel, Grand Prix jumper rider and judge
  • Adam Whitehead, farrier
  • Amy Dragoo, photographer
  • Ruthann Smith, braider, groom, entrepreneur

You can expect I treat our subject matter experts with professionalism and respect. They will feel reassured talking to a lifelong horsewoman because I speak their language, too.
