About the Author
I became passionate about pony rescue after taking on a neglected New Forest pony 24 years ago who I called Bella. What really touched my heart and was priceless was the transformation over a one year period - after some hard work and understanding Bella turned into a healthy & trusting pony. In 1995 I opened my own sanctuary for New Forest ponies and saved and rehomed over 57 from slaughter over a 5 year period. This was so rewarding and totally voluntary and I had to raise over £80,000 a year to keep it going. I took on Chelsea who was 6 months old, she was riddled with lice and worms and would attack any man who came near her, after plenty of patience and tender loving care we formed a truly awesome and special relationship, and I decided I would keep her myself! I had a lot of difficult ponies, young foals that I rescued who had been taken away from their homes too early. Wild mares, and many sick foals who needed calm and understanding and ongoing veterinary care. Body language played a very important part and I had over 30 volunteers helping on a rota, this is how I met my best friend Hannah. Chelsea is on permanent loan with friends near Yarmouth and she actually got to compete at Burghley. I received an award from the Mayor of Eastbourne for my hard work within the community. I also published a book called Shelly finds her dream pony Chelsea, 4 years ago, an American critic Sue said my book was too perfect, she has helped and encouraged me to re-write the book and to bring in rescue work this is now The Adventures of Bella & Emily. In November 2012 we met Karen Lippitt at a healing session who founded Helping Paws and we all clicked instantly and since then we have continuously raised funds to help animals in need all over the world. We help fund neutering and spaying schemes and also support sanctuaries in Portugal, Romania, Bulgaria, Spain and wherever we can. We are always coming up with ideas and last year we walked over broken glass, fire and broke a ¾ inch of wood and raised over £11,000. Via Helping Paws we have funded and bought over many dogs from Portugal & Spain who needed a safe life in FOREVER homes here in the UK. I have suffered with fibromyalgia for 5 years and arthritis in my neck so my days of helping horses and ponies hands on are sadly over. This is why I decided to help the 5 organisations I have chosen to benefit from 50% profit from the kindle sales and paperback sales of my book.

Emilys commitment and excitment at buying items from the tack store, her gentle compassion and fun at the pony show took me back to riding my first pony and that care free special relantionship that you have when your pony is your best friend, and in the stable you can pamper them and tell them all your secrets. Highly recommend
You will need tissues but only a few, and you will have lots and lots of smiles and laughter at Bella's antics. Very exciting and everyone pulled together to rescue a lady and save her life.
Buying a few copies of the Book for my grandchildren and other people.... Well done Michelle a great book which leaves you smiling.
