Meet the Author

Melanie Bowles, along with her husband, Jim, is the founder of Proud Spirit Horse Sanctuary. Since its modest beginnings in the early 1990s on just five acres of land in southwest Florida, Proud Spirit has evolved into an award-winning, 300-plus-acre facility and one of the most successful, longest-running sanctuaries for horses in the United States. Over the years, Melanie and Jim have intervened on the behalf of nearly 300 horses in need. Melanie is the author of three books that chronicle life at this unique ranch: The Horses of Proud Spirit, Hoof Prints: More Stories from Proud Spirit, and The Dogs of Proud Spirit.
