Growing up between Maryland and Florida, Natalie Keller Reinert has spent much of her life in the saddle. From galloping racehorses at Aqueduct, to grooming for international-level Event riders in Ocala, to riding on mounted patrol in New York City, if it involves horses, Reinert’s probably given it a try.
In 2011 she released her first novella, THE HEAD AND NOT THE HEART, which became the first of four books in the best-selling Alex and Alexander Series. The second novel in this series, OTHER PEOPLE’S HORSES, went on to become a semi-finalist for the Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award, a prize for literature about the horse racing industry. The fourth novel, TURNING FOR HOME, was a top three finalist.
Reinert’s runaway bestseller AMBITION leads the highly successful Eventing Series, which has seven books to date (and more on the way, thanks to constant requests from readers). The novel SHOW BARN BLUES was written as a standalone piece but after many requests, a follow-up, HORSES IN WONDERLAND, continues the Show Barn Blues Series. In 2019, Reinert released THE HIDDEN HORSES OF NEW YORK, with entirely new characters and settings, to outstanding reviews. Now with more than twenty-five books in print spanning multiple series, Reinert continues to make lifelong fans with her rich descriptions and detailed novels.
Natalie Keller Reinert also writes about theme parks under the name N.K. Reinert. Find out more about her first theme park novel, YOU MUST BE THIS TALL, at nataliekreinert.shop.
In 2022, Reinert added podcasting to her resume with Adulting With Horses, a podcast for horsewomen, co-hosted with author Heather Wallace. Find Adulting With Horses on all podcast apps, Horse Radio Network, or at adultingwithhorsespodcast.com.
Reinert lives on a farm in north Florida with her family, including an opinionated chestnut pony named Ben.

Will there be a sequel to “Show Barn Blues?” I’m a native Floridian, intensely dislike developers, used to ride my horse on Ponte Vedra Beach and in the area where Sawgrass is now before the developers wrecked it. I have loved horses all my life and really relate to Grace. She lives the life of my dreams. Thank you for writing such a delightful book and I hope there will be another. Grace needs to catch the bad guys, trail ride with Snowbirds and let us know what happened to her first pony!
Hi Mitzi! Thanks so much for the comment! I know the Sawgrass area, too. It’s hard to watch Florida get plowed under this way. That’s why I hope there’s another story about Grace in the future. It seems we need to speak up about our natural resources now, more than ever. Some people never learn.
You can also find more Grace in Pride, Book 2 of The Eventing Series!
Hi There! I just finished reading all three books in the Eventing Series, and I loved them all! I was just wondering if there was ever going to be another book in that series, and if so, do you know when this will happen?! Thank you for giving your readers great books to interest them!
Be still my horse-loving, writerly heart! I found a post you had written on the Equestrian Culture website and googled your name because I loved your writing so much. You can’t believe how much I love finding horsewomen who are also beautiful writers. I’ll be obsessively reading your posts tonight 🙂
I read all your books in the Eventing series and fell in love. You do such a good job putting together a story that makes your characters come to life. At the end of book 5 I was so sad it was over. Are you going to make another book after Forward? Thank you for writing the series. I will definitely be reading more of your books.
Hi Carrie! Thank you so much for the message. I am so so happy to know the Eventing Series meant something to you.
I’m currently planning on working on the sixth book this fall with a holiday release date.

I clicked on your survey about which series I liked best but it was hard choosing which one. Also, you didn’t include the two stand alones, “Grabbing Mane” and “Hidden Horses of New York”, which are definitely among my favorites. I have written you before (last year some time) about the wonderful, lyrical quality of your prose, especially in descriptions of the ambiance, but it bears repeating. One of the things I especially appreciate is that most of your protagonists are mature; your books are not aimed just at devotees of “National Velvet” and “The Black Stallion” – thank you very much. We women of a certain age (and older) like to read about people like ourselves finding love, learning new things about horses and riding, even getting into a new lifestyle, as in “Grabbing Mane”. I also like the Conoctin Creek books characters involved with horses in very different ways.
I’m from Woodsboro in Frederick County. How far is that from where you grew up? I’ve enjoyed reading about Trout’s Market because we have one here, going to Frederick, I’m about 10 miles from there, shopping on Market Street. I taught at Thurmont Middle School for 17 years and looked at those mountains every weekday on my way to school. I travel over Route 77 through the mountains to visit my sister in Williamsport. Can’t wait to read the fourth book. Thanks for making these personal for me.
Hi Mitzi! How exciting! Yes I lived in Woodsboro for a time when I was a teenager. I was a waitress at Crum’s and everything! So you know exactly where Catoctin Creek is set 🙂
When do we get a movie of the Eventing Series? I think Sky Katz would be the perfect Jules. So much fun reading this series. You really capture the lifestyle, challenges and brief rewards.
Will book 2 and 3 of the Briar Hill Series come out in book form or only ebook?
Hi, yes they’ll come out in paperback and hardcover as well as in ebook. Additionally, I have some package options in the Kickstarter for the audiobook! You can find it here through January 11 2023: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nataliekreinert/briar-hill-farm-womens-fiction-equestrian-series-audiobook
