Marianne Mjelva is a Norwegian author, who learned to ride when she was right. When she was 10, she wrote in her diary: ‘When I grow up I’m going to be a dog owner, a horse owner and a writer.’ She’s done all of those: she owns a Thoroughbred mare called Tingen, a Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever called Talice, and has written a pony book for Stabenfeldt, My Life with Penny.
Finding the book
Very tricky to find in the UK, but widely available in the USA.
