About the Author

For over 35 years, Jean Abernethy's editorial, technical and comical illustrations have been gracing equestrian periodicals and books. Jean studied equestrian skills at Humber College, then earned her art degree at OCAD University in Toronto. Her comical style of drawing spawned the character "Fergus the Horse" who has gained a following of over 310,000 Facebook and Instagram fans. Now with four Fergus books written and illustrated, the fun continues. Having dabbled in saddle making, worked as a barn hand, carriage driver and trail guide, Jean's experience unfolds with a sense horse-humour that kicks in right where the steel meets the road...so to speak...
