She has always loved animals—especially horses—and studied to be an animal technician at San Joaquin Valley College. Laurel is blessed to be able to use her passions of trail riding, dressage, and cooking to help her community, whether it is through her restaurant or through her women’s trail rides for children’s charity funds.
Laurel had a dream, and through this book she hopes to inspire all children to believe in themselves and their own dreams. Her greatest hope of having a horse came true with Stepper, and the love, loyalty, and their special bond was unbreakable and lasted a lifetime.
