About HorseGirl

HorseGirl and ShowPonyMy real name is Erin McCabe, but back in Junior High, a boy I had a crush on started calling me HorseGirl.  Maybe I should have been offended, but I wasn’t.  I’m still not.  When other girls outgrew their obsession with horses, mine just kept right on growing.  I have a husband, a son, one dog, two horses, four cats, two goats, and nine chickens.

In 2008, I decided to quit teaching high school English so I could go to grad school to get an MFA in Creative Writing.  I kept my job teaching horseback riding to (mostly) girls,  so now I spend my days doing the things I love most:  hanging out at the barn teaching and riding or hanging out at home reading and writing and watching my son play in the dirt.

If I can do this blog thing right, you’ll be able to read about Kids, Horses, Teaching, Writing.  Hopefully there will be ribbons, a-ha moments, and fewer annoying things like the inevitable bruises, dust, mud, and flies.  Hopefully I’ll be able to keep everything all tidy in nifty little sections.  Hopefully there will be photos.  And there is definitely a novel, though it’s not about horses. It’s called I Shall Be Near To You, and it comes out January 28, 2014.
