This is the story of ‘Inspector Kelly’, a big grey horse bred by Victoria Police. It is a biography of great scope and delight, for all those who love horses – and animals generally – and want to better understand them. We learn about Kelly’s training to become a troop horse, and years of distinguished service in Mounted Branch. Then, when this gentle giant left the Force, we follow his new careers as hunter, Royal Show performer and trail horse.

Along the way, the author recounts her own journey of learning with horses. She discusses changes that have occurred in their training and management. Her charming account is rich with interesting information and fascinating snippets of social history, as she examines developments in ethical care that have arisen in the span of Kelly’s long and eventful life.

Author Notes: Shan Shnookal loved horses from a very early age, and rode for a short time as a teenager. She obtained a B.Sc. from Melbourne University, but became involved in modern dance, and later taught English to adult migrants. She returned to riding when she was nearly 40 years old, with a fresh and unusual perspective: a scientist’s penchant for asking ‘why’ and a dancer’s desire for harmony and grace in her partnership with her horse.
