Hi, from a rider to a writer

Hi, everyone!

I'm Jessica and I'm 21-years-old. I rode horses for eight years before I had spinal surgery and couldn't ride. Now, I write about horses instead of riding. :)

I'm so glad to find a community to meet other horse lovers.

Glad to be here!

welcome to the forum! I'm so sorry to hear that you can't ride anymore! What type of horse stories do you write about?

Thanks for the welcome, everyone! :)

Right now, I'm writing a fictional horse series for kids from 8-12. I've read a lot of horse books that have incorrect horse facts, so I wanted to offer something fictional but factually correct to horse-crazy kids. Or introduce horses to non-horse fans.

Weclome ma'am aand i am sorry to hear about your surgey. That is great idea about those book.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

Welcome to the HF!!! Maybe you can share some of your stories in the Stories and Poems section! BTW, is Canterwood Crest one of the books that you wrote?
