Stacy Gregg

Stacy Gregg is a fashion journalist who rode in her youth, and has started riding again now she is writing for the pony market. She had to beg her parents for years before she was given a pony, but she eventually succeeded, and at the age of ten, Bonnie was hers. Bonnie was followed by a string of mares: Black Jill, Maddie and Luka, though she has ridden the occasional gelding. Now, she has a Dutch Warmblood called Ash, and is a keen supporter of the ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses), which features in her books. A donation is given to the ILPH when each book is published.  


The Pony Club Secrets series is based on the activities of the girls who go to the Chevalier Point Pony Club, in New Zealand, and the Pony Club Rivals series is set in an American school for talented riders. Both series have been published in the UK, and have been very succesful. The Pony Club Rivals series makes a nod towards fantasy, but is basically a straightforward series of stories based on the Pony Club. Since she finished the series, Stacy Gregg has turned to writing standalone pony stories.
