About the Book

Diosa is as close to black as the sun allows. She has been awarded a "Best playing Pony Award," at the prestigious Palm Beach International Polo Club in the women's tournament.

The press loves Diosa. She has appeared in the Palm Beach Post, the Sun Sentinel, and of course in the New York Post's infamous Page Six, where all legendary women usually land.

Amy Phillips Penn is a former syndicated society columnist ( New York Post and Palm Beach Daily News.) She has contributed to CNN, national magazines and many equestrian and polo publications. She knows that Diosa can tell her own story better than she can. They both hope that you will enjoy their journey.

About the Author


Few people in the Hamptons know horses better than Amy Phillips Penn, who has made a career out of playing polo and writing about it. So it’s of little surprise that Diosa—Penn’s pony, who weathered a devastating wildfire in California by Penn’s side—narrates her first novel, Diosa: One Mare’s Odyssey on the Planet Earth ($17.95; AuthorHouse). The book chronicles that wildfire experience, following the two friends as they search for a peaceful place to live. “I think having an animal tell it from their perspective is an effective way of reaching people, especially children,” says Penn, adding that the book is ultimately both a celebration of the sport and the animal she loves so much—and a call to take care of our environment while we still can.
