musings on horses and becoming sage...


About Eleanor & Sage

Sage and Eleanor, June 2011

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my family and a Quarter Horse named Sage Brush Sail Her. I am also a publicist who specializes in authors and their books.


In the year 2000 I married my husband, and in the summer of 2001 I got back into horses after a 12 year absence. I saw Sage as a very green two year old and felt that she was perfect for me within the first 10 minutes of seeing her. She had a really nice temperament, but mostly something just clicked for me; I knew she was "the one".

After a month long wait and a clean vet check, Sage was delivered to the barn near my home. She arrived with loose stools after her trailer ride; this was the beginning of a ten year journey trying to fix what ailed her...see the rest of the story here.

My Background

In addition to my experiences with Sage and many other companion animals, I have multiple years of horse experience from my teen and college years. I also have a bachelor degree in Zoology from the University of California, Davis.
