Michael Guerini is a horseman, author and scientist from Gilroy, California. From an early age he gained valuable experience working with his family to train horses. To this day he continues to work with his family to develop a whole horse relationship training and education program. Michael studies Dressage, performance horses and teaches routinely on the merits of good horsemanship and improving the relationship of the horse and rider (www.dunmovinranch.com).
As a scientist, Michael is involved in the areas of genetics, microbiology and most things relating to the world of biotechnology. In 2011, Michael introduced his first work of fiction about a scientist who becomes a veterinarian and puts all his skills to work in solving medical problems in animals (Old Towne: Beginnings). A rich work with both human and animal characters and a fun wholesome read, great for youth interested in how the worlds of veterinary medicine and biotechnology work.
Michael is a Lifetime member of the American Quarter Horse Association and a Lifetime (Founding Pioneers) Member of the Western Dressage Association of America.
Michael has authored two non-fiction books on Ground Work and Advanced Responsive Riding for the horsemen and horsewomen. With his unique blend of ground work, dressage and general colt starting philosophy, he can help you build a stronger relationship with your horse.
My first work of fiction, Old Towne: Beginnings was released in December 2011.
My first work of Poetry/Free verse, Of Horses & Life, was released as a free publication in April of 2012.

Smashwords book reviews by Michael Guerini
- Storm and the Magic Saddle
on June 16, 2012
picked this book up about a week ago and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. The horses are wonderful and have interesting conversations. I completely love the interactions of the horses with Buzz as well as the Armadillo. As a horseman, I appreciate the good quality horsemanship advice that this book shares. Reta, Dave, Donnie and Robbie are a great wholesome family. Dr. Adams is a great character and I think he reminds me of an old veterinarian I know.
I strongly recommend this book for children, YA and horse lovers.
