Author Notes: Hilary Shalvey has owned and ridden horses for many years and is passionate about high standards of horse husbandry. Her career with horses spans many disciplines including breeding, breaking and schooling, showing and dressage, but today her skills are mainly directed at helping owners to rehabilitate horses that have been adversely affected by bad experiences.
During her time working with horses Hilary says she has seen a diminishing pool of knowledge available for the hobby horse owner to call on, and frequently nowadays they are left to muddle through on their own. Her books aim to redress this imbalance with practical, sensible advice for the amateur owner/rider. She currently divides her time between her stables in Buckinghamshire and her home in Malta, where she lives with her husband and retired greyhounds.
