Melody Huttinger grew up with horses as her best friends. She learned to train them, tutored by her father, who rescued many so-called untrainable and neglected animals. Her family owned and operated various riding stables throughout the years, providing inspiration for the background of the Arrow the Sky Horse series. Many of the characters in the story are drawn from the colorful collection of characters she met as a young dude wrangler.
From her family home in Northern Arizona, Melody has
carried on the tradition of re-training Thoroughbreds
off the track and has owned and trained various other
breeds, including Arabians, Quarter Horses and
As a child, Melody read every horse story available, but at times became disappointed in the lack of knowledge that many of the authors displayed. She set out to write her own story depicting horses in a more realistic light.
Arrow the Sky Horse series, although partly fantasy, is
based on her own experiences growing up with a family
in the horse business. She hopes all readers, young and old,
will be entertained and enjoy the stories about the animals
so close to her heart.
