Julie Whitaker and Ian Whitelaw share a lifelong love of horses. They have acted as editorial consultants on equine titles and have written for a wide range of publishers. Their first horse was the ex-steeplechaser Hjani, which they exercised on the South Downs of England, and they currently keep three horses on a 13-acre farm on Vancouver Island. Julie competes over jumps on an appaloosa/quarter horse gelding and has completed extensive ranch rides in Arizona. Ian rides Western on local mountain trails and English over jumps. Both are members of the Silver Spur Western trail-riding club. William Steinkraus (foreword) was a gold medalist in showjumping in the 1968 Olympics. He has served as a television commentator at four Olympic Games and three World Championships, and has officiated as International Judge at the Olympic Games, World Championships, and World Cup Finals. He is Chairman Emeritus of the US Equestrian Team.
