As I write this, it is an unbelievable 122 degrees outside. Summer has certainly arrived in Arizona! Unfortunately, some summer days are just too hot to venture outdoors or to the barn to be with our equine pals. So I put together a list of my favorite horse movies. These are some of the all time greats. These are the horse flicks I've seen time and time again.
The ones that I never tire of. These are horse movies that I'll watch on DVD or Netflix when I stay indoors during the hottest part of the day trying to beat the heat and am seeking a little equine inspiration! I hope you enjoy my summer guide to great horse movies ...
It was a journal entry that started it all ...
Cowboy McKennon Kelly came to me (like lightning) in the form of a poem. I vividly remember the day I furiously scrawled him in my journal. I didn’t want to miss a thing, a thought, a moment of his inception. Thank goodness I always have a journal with me because that poem ended up being the intro to the book. This picture shows the transition from my journal entry to text. Seeing it in print in the opening pages of 'In The Reins' always makes my spurs jingle.
The best thing about being an author has been the people I’ve partnered with and met on my journey to publishing 'In The Reins'. There has been a very real magic coursing through all the people that have come together around the book. Friends, family, acquaintances, perfect strangers, colleagues – everyone was so kind when I shared my dream of being a published author with them. All these lovely humans then proceeded to open doors that I couldn't even see were there. Now the dream has come true and I am one!
I am overflowing with gratitude for all the passionate people who have come on this journey with me from readers to those who have left my book a review to fellow equestrian authors who have been so supportive to other entrepreneurs I’ve met along the way. When dreamers band together and support each other anything is possible. You can’t do it on your own. So in order to give back (or pay it forward), I’ve decided to host an equestrian author spotlight series on my blog!
Horse books make my spurs jingle! Before I am a writer, I am a reader. I owe my favorite authors a great deal. They make me feel. My favorite authors speak to a place that engages me and fills me up no matter where I am in life, happy, sad, mad, overwhelmed, they write to the place that heals me when I am cuddled up and lost in a good book!
In this first spotlight edition with Amy Elizabeth, one of my very favorite horse book authors, we talk writing, books and horses. You'll love her favorite horsey memory! Amy offers some great insight for writers including how to be with negative reviews! Enjoy the read. It's a great ride!
