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 13 with her second 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 in Wisconsin on her family's small farm, where she grew up dreaming about living a full-time equestrian life.
