Acknowlegdments (Or Why This is “About Us” and Not “About Me”)
I have to begin by thanking my wonderful husband, Jaime, for his positive support, encouragement, and persistent patience with me throughout this process. He never once questioned me; he believed in me. Everyone should be so lucky to have such strength in their lives.
My brother, Eddy, provided sound advice based on his many years of teaching experience and creativity, enriching my books from stories to what will hopefully be learning experiences. He developed the educational Discussion Guides/Activities on his own initiative, which then led to our creation of Teacher’s Tack for Believing In Horses – another great adventure!
I thank my mom, Flo, for her support, her editorial guidance, and for listening to me throughout this venture.
I thank the organizations Freedom Hill Horse Rescue and Thoroughbred Placement and Rescue, Incorporated which allowed me to visit and research to make realistic renditions of events in my first book. I was completely inspired by the volunteers who help keep horses from seeing fates they shouldn’t see. I also thank the dedicated people at the Caisson Platoon Equine Assisted Programs, Maryland Therapeutic Riding, and the SPIRIT Serving Veterans Program for working with me on my second book and sharing their valuable time and insights with me. A large thanks also goes to Loftmar Stables for too many reasons to list here.
I thank Martha Rhoades-Spivey, and her MRS Photography, LLC, for her spectacular photos, and Jaime, again, this time, for his photographic talent.
Finally, I thank my publisher, J.B. Max Publishing, for taking a chance on this unknown author – twice.
