Richard E. Bishop

I first came across these snooty foxes years ago on the Horse and Hound website, and I’ve loved them ever since. After a little recent research, I have found that artist Richard E.

Book Review: Ride Every Stride

I recently finished reading Amy Maltman’s Ride Every Stride, and it was truly divine. When I read the synopsis and learned that the main character was a male, I was intrigued. Most of the leads in horse books are females, so it was nice to have the other perspective for once! When we meet eighteen[…]
