Discussing Marguerite Henry and Misty Magic on The Empathetic Trainer Podcast

One of the wonderful aspects of my deep dive into the history of Marguerite Henry, is the opportunity to meet fellow fans of the beloved author and her famous pony Misty of Chincoteague. One such soul is Barbara O'Brien of The Empathetic Trainer podcast. Barbara has a super cool job--she's a trainer for animal actors! (I hope she write a book about that one day.)

For Misty of Chincoteague Fans

It was so much fun to be a guest on Barbara's podcast and discuss Marguerite and Barbara's affinity for Morgans, the devotion Marguerite Henry to her fans (including responding to one of her dear readers in Braille) and our individual journeys to horsewomanhood. 

If you need more Misty of Chincoteague nostalgia and are eager to hear snippets of the Marguerite Henry biography, I hope you'll listen to or watch this episode.
