As a long-time instructor and trainer, Marcy enjoys teaching horsemanship and working with young or problem horses when time and stall space permits.  She most enjoys working with adults who are fearful or who have relationship issues with their own horses.  Marcy has had the privilege of learning in-person and under saddle from trainers and clinicians such as Richard Shrake, Mark Smith, Don Blazer, Chuck Kibler, and the late, great Gordon Shea.  
Marcy's experience with horses is as varied as her writing experience.  At the height of the Arabian Industry's lavish excess, she worked for Gordon Shea Arabians and Tom Chauncey Arabians.  She attended Scottsdale Community College's equine program at the same time.  In the late 1980's, she was the first female officer on the Scottsdale Police Department's Mounted Unit.  She has twice completed the 150-mile Billy the Kid Trail Ride spanning the distance from Fort Sumner to Lincoln, New Mexico, and has participated in cattle drives, gathering, and branding.  Her particular passion at present is ranch sorting.  A long-time Quarter Horse breeder, she's a member of the AQHA and the RSNC (Ranch Sorting National Championships).
