Writer needs your help!

Hey guys. I've never had a horse and have only been horseback riding once. I'm writing a fiction story at the moment where one of my characters is just starting to get into horse shows and wants to begin competing. I've done some research on the Internet, but I'm still not confident enough in all the language and ins and outs to be able to write it well. If anyone has any time and would like to help me out with some tips in email or discuss it with me, I'd really appreciate it.

Please email me at penstroke80@yahoo.com

Thanks in advance,

Hi, Amber. Welcome! I'm a writer, too. I've written for just about every NY-based publisher there is, and currently write for horse magazines, too. It seems like lately I feel like an old dog of the publishing biz. What a crazy industry. You can find me on the web at Pamela Britton Home.

I frequently write horsey books, though they're disguised as romance novels for adults. ;) What do you need to know?

If you need any further assistance, I'd be happy to help - I'm certainly not as experienced writing-wise as Pam, but I have written for a state newspaper for several years, and am working on a novel. :) I event, and have done hunter stuff, straight dressage, and jumper shows, so I can help you with the ins-and-outs of said disciplines. Feel free to PM me! :)

And now, the men of the Second Armored Division with their famous close-order swanning about.
