Short Bio: Angharad Thompson Rees is an author and comic scriptwriter for children and young adults. She has worked with horses across the globe from Olympic showjumpers and Melbourne Cup Festival racehorses to training young horses using horse whispering techniques. Her lifelong passion and in-depth knowledge of equestrianism bring the ponies of Magical Adventures & Pony Tales to life.

Long Bio: Angharad Thompson Rees is the author of the Magical Adventures & Pony Tales children’s book series. She writes comic scripts for a popular European pony magazine and her short stories have been published in many young adult literary journals across the world. A dabbling poet, Angharad won the judge’s pick in an international spoken word competition and is working on a children’s fantasy novel-in-verse.

Before writing full time, Angharad travelled the world working with horses, from Olympic showjumpers and Melbourne Cup Festival racehorses to breaking in and schooling Horse of the Year show ponies. She trained in the art of horse whispering and helped facilitate workshops in France to help owners create better relationships with young horses.

But her proudest moment was winning her regional dressage championships as a junior on her pony, Hillside Sonnet – who was claimed to be unrideable. The fiery red pony was the inspiration for Magical Adventures & Pony Tales and lives on in memory within the pages of The Girl and her Pony.
