Katie Navarra grew up in western New York where she enjoyed an early introduction to horses. At eight, her first pony stepped off the trailer right onto her sneaker-clad foot, initiating her into the joys and pains of horse ownership. Today, she is an award-winning writer who has developed a specialty covering hoofcare and the farrier industry. Navarra is the author of Horses In Action! and The Horse Show Read-and-Play Sticker Book. She also serves on the American Horse Publications executive committee. Writing is just one chapter of her lifelong involvement in the horse industry. She provides custom leadership development coaching experiences in partnership with horses. She is an accredited coach through the International Coaching Federation and a certified E3A Equine Facilitator. Within her coaching practice, she asks questions that lead them to define what they really want out of life (katienavarra.com).
