ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kerri has a deep passion for horses, something her parents hoped she would outgrow but never did. The photo on this page is the author at age 11 with her first pony. In addition to owning her first two ponies and showing in 4H, she experienced life as a show groom, rider, and riding instructor at two hunter/jumper stables and recently volunteered at a local therapy stable where she groomed, tacked up, and led horses for lessons. She and her husband live on the farm where she grew up dreaming about a full-time equestrian life.
