An ordinary leisure rider

Sigrid Goldmann, rider and author

Leisure rider Sigrid Goldmann and her young horse Helgi


I am an amateur rider who has called one or more Icelandic horses her own for more than two decades. Over the course of that time, my horses have taught me many things, and together they created lots of memories. Memories that I will turn into stories to be published here


When I'm not spending time with my horses, or writing up stories about that time with my horses, I earn my own and my horses' living as a software engineer. I spend a lot of time out in my garden, planting vegetables and herbs, which will later be used in the kitchen occasionally as ingredients for herbal remedies, like home-made salves.


I also writes science fiction and fantasy stories under the pen name Frances Silversmith.
