Kate Lattey lives in Waikanae, New Zealand and started riding at the age of 10. She was lucky enough to get her first pony two years later, and went on to compete regularly as a teenager before heading to university and attaining a degree in English and Media Studies. In the years since, Kate has never been far from horses, and has worked in various jobs including as a livery yard groom in England, a trekking guide in Ireland, running a riding school in New Zealand, and spending five wonderful summers in the USA as a camp counsellor at Road's End Farm, NH. During her time there Kate wrote several short stories about the farm's horses, which were a huge hit with the campers. Kate is the Head Coach of Waikanae Pony Club and regularly judges at shows in the local area, as well as training her horse JJ for show hunter competitions. Kate has been reading and writing pony stories ever since she can remember, and loves being able to share them with readers from all over the world.
