Nancy Peter: "Twenty Horses"

When Nancy Peter began writing “Twenty Horses” in December 2015, she had been riding horses for forty-five years but had never owned one. Yet she had formed deep relationships with many horses over those many decades – and finally found a horse of her own. This book, her first, describes those twenty wonderful horses, the vastly different cities, towns, and countrysides that she explored on horseback, and the deep life lessons she learned along the way.

Half of all profits from the book go to the Monastery Stables and Fairmount Park grounds to help other people know the joy of relationships with horses.

Nancy Peter is a science educator who was born and raised in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Behavior, and Master’s and Doctoral Degrees in Education. Nancy still resides in Mt. Airy with her husband, her sons, and several dogs, cats, fish, and other creatures.
