While growing up, Bernadette Kelly desperately wanted her own horse. Although she rode other people's horses, she didn't get one of her own until she was an adult. Many years later, she is still obsessed with horses. Luckily, she lives in the country where there is plenty of room for her four-legged friends. When she's not writing or working with her horses, Bernadette takes her two children to pony club competitions.
