Hello my name is Jack! I am eight years old.

I like long walks and taking pictures with my camera, I also love riding my ponies, Jester and Scrumpy Jack. I love spending time with my ponies!

My favourite subject at school is maths. When I grow up I would like to be a Race Jockey.

I like the Joe books because they are about a boy like me.

Do horses mirror us?

In my latest trilogy The Horseshoe Trilogy a Romany lady called Nellie tells Joe that horses mirror our feelings. I often notice this when I’m with our horses. My niece Sophie was staying with us a couple of years ago. She got on very well with our Exmoor pony Gaia, who was then about one and a half years old. While she was playing with her in the barn one day I took these photos. It was only afterwards, when I looked at them closely, that I realised Gaia was mirroring Sophie’s expressions and body language. Fascinating!
