About Karen Belove 

Ms. Belove thought about writing The Sally Horse Chronicles years ago, when she bought her first horse while mucking stalls at a riding school in New York City. Since then, she has been involved in many aspects of the sport, including dressage, cross country jumping, and eventing.


With this new character-driven book and series, she combines her love of storytelling with her love of horses – and explores that magical bond that can exist between horse and human. Ms. Belove still spends much of her time in New York City, but has a home in upstate New York where she rides the beautiful horse trails of Dutchess County.


"The Sally Horse Chronicles are not just social interactions between children in a barn setting. They are about commitment, loyalty, love, dignity, respect, and friendship. The books are about a horse and her person, and they take readers on an adventurous, emotional journey that unfolds between an “unmanageable” horse and a troubled 12-year old girl." -- Karen Belove
