August 2007

Some not so good news - I've had to sell Georgia. She went to a wonderful and kind home and I know she'll be really happy and well looked after. I'll miss you, beautiful horse!

April 2007

Pony Club is amazing! Every month we have a gymkhana and Georgia is doing really well. We won another blue ribbon this month in barrel racing. I don't think we took the barrels as fast as Ash and Honey but we had just as much fun!

March 2007

Georgia and I have just joined Pony Club and we're having an amazing time! We just won our very first blue ribbon together in the flag race. We won a few red and white ribbons too - what an incredible day!

July 2006

What a month! The Horse Mad Series was officially launched at the News South Wales Writers' Centre on July 22nd. I had such a good time. Shona Martyn from HarperCollins Publishers was there to open the launch then multi award-winning author Susanne Gervay officially launched the series. I said a few words and we cut the cake (chocolate mud – yum!).
