Seraphina Alexander had an intense love of horses from an early age when she was given her first pony. Coming from an equestrian family, she was lucky enough to be supported by her mother, father, and older siblings who were experienced in all aspects of horsemanship. By the time Seraphina reached adulthood, she was an accomplished competitor in dressage, showjumping, and eventing. After studying for an English degree at university, she then secured a job working for a publisher specializing in books about the countryside. After a few years of working as a general editor there, Seraphina went on to writing her own material about the training and competition of horses. Today, she lives on the outskirts of London, England, where she still competes her own horses in local and national competitions.
