Meet the Author

Like many young girls, Heidi A. McLaughlin was your typical horse-crazy kid! She had a collection of plastic horses on her window sill and freaked out every time she saw a horse in real life. All Heidi ever wanted to do was ride one. But her first experience in the saddle at eight years old was anything but wonderful when her grandmother's barn sour horse ran away with her and scared her half to death. While her passion was still there, the terrifying experience left her with a paralyzing fear of the creatures that she loved so much; a fear that would take more than half her lifetime to overcome.

While her parents didn't share in her passion for horses, her husband, Pete did. And after their three sons were grown, he recognized that his wife's obsession was not going to go away and so he gave her his unconditional support as she bought and sold horse after horse searching for the perfect match. But what Heidi didn't know at the time was that her fear was so deep-seeded that no horse on earth would ever be right for her until she first dealt with the real problem, her fear; thus beginning her long and frustrating journey into fearless horsemanship.

Her degree in Journalism as well as her experience as a free lance writer, gives her an edge that helps the reader understand her personal journey into fearless horsemanship on a personal level as well a practical level with the advice of many famous experts in the field.

Heidi is also a speaker on the subject and has a goal to help people get over their fear and into joyful horseback riding. Because, she feels, that if she can get over it, so can you!
