Episode 47: Welcome to the Equestrian Author Spotlight podcast! In each episode, you’ll hear inspirational stories from horse book authors including writing advice and marketing tips to help you write your own horse book. If you are an author, aspire to be an author, or simply love horse books then you are in the right place!

In this week's episode, you'll meet author and photographer Julia Soplop. You'll learn ...

  • About what led Julia to research and write about how the horse, throughout U.S. history, has served as one of the most powerful influences on the country’s development. 
  • Ways that Julia used storytelling to employ the horse as a narrative thread not only to bind seemingly disparate events, but also to allow for the inclusion of figures often written out of traditional histories: women and minorities. 
  • Why it was important for her to include tables, maps, and captivating pen and ink illustrations by Montana artist Robert Spannring, interspersed with her own stunning photography of wild horses, to add further depth to EQUUS Rising: How the Horse Shaped U.S. History.
  • And MUCH more!
