Busy Behind the Scenes

Have you noticed?

Over the past few months, the delivery of newsletters and content on NickerNews and BestHorsePractices has gone from a steady flow to a steady, um, trickle.

coverBut slacking off ain’t the cause.

Aside from the big move to Utah and a new blog, I’ve been working on a book.

A Rider’s Reader: Exploring Horse Sense, Science & Sentiment should hit the proverbial bookshelves by June. It highlights journeys with horses, profiles of renowned horseman and women, equine research, and editorials.

Emily Kitching, president of Eclectic Horseman, generously wrote the foreword. I’m grateful to Gary Lawless of the Gulf of Maine Books, Cindy Meehl of Cedar Creek Productions, and Meris Bickford CEO of Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals, for their critical reviews of the manuscript.

Here is a cover shot, taken by Shepherd Waldenberger, a talented, young photographer currently working in Jackson Hole, WY.

Stay tuned for more details. And, as always, thank you very much for your support.
