Sky Pony Press

Launched in 2011, Sky Pony Press is the children's book imprint of Skyhorse Publishing. Their website has this to say:
Our continually growing list includes fiction, picture books, educational books, and novelty books...Since we do not view our potential readers as generic age groups, but rather as individual children, each with specific talents and needs, we publish in a broad range of subject matter to celebrate their diverse interests.
They have a blog called Sky Pony Express that offers insights into the people behind the books at Sky Pony, including a Meet the Ponies post with some bios.

Sky Pony Press accepts unsolicited submissions via email. Find their submission guidelines here.
