Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to email us and send in their writing in response to our search for a writer to carry on with the Equestrian Legends book we are publishing later this year. The amount of talent we saw was incredible, but unfortunately we could only take on one writer. We also saw some fabulous ideas for alternative books and are really hoping we can work with the authors of those projects.
After lots of deliberation we have finally found someone to continue with Polly’s good work.
Sara O’Donovan is a freelance equestrian journalist who writes for the Irish Horse World section of the Irish Field. She has also had features in Horse and Hound, the Irish Examiner and various other newspapers. While her full time job is as the PR Manager of the West Cork Literary Festival she still finds time to show jump. Sara was brought up in the racing world, both her father and mother worked in racing. Sara’s had some brilliant sounding jobs in the horse industry, working at Weatherbys, for show jumper Stephen Hadley and spent a year as racing secretary to the Queen’s trainer, Lord Huntingdon.
Just like everyone at Lavender and White – Sara’s dual passions in life are horses and writing. She published a book called The Horses of County Cork in 2006 and is currently halfway through a novel.
We are really looking forward to working with Sara and looking forward to seeing Equestrian Legends completed – will keep you posted on our progress.
