Product Overview

The tears, tantrums and triumphs of Australia's leading equestrian riders. Riders featured include: Laurie Lever , Heath Ryan , Vicki Roycroft , Wendy Schaeffer , Brett Parbery , Rachael Sanna.

Like all sport, equestrian has its highs and lows, its wins and losses, its achievements and disappointments. But, as author and long time rider Samantha Miles notes, it has one factor which sets it apart - the horse.

Sometimes partner, sometimes opponent, the horse′s mindset presents major challenges for even veteran riders. Imagine Lance Armstrong trying to win the Tour de France on a bike that suddenly developed a mind of its own, and you come close to the situation that riders face on a daily basis.

In this entertaining and informative book, Samantha Miles delves behind the stories of Australia′s leading and legendary equestrian riders in dressage, show jumping and events, drawing out their most memorable and intense experiences -- the good, the bad and the times when they just plain embarrassed themselves.

This behind-the-scenes look at what it took for each rider to achieve their goals is an insight not only for people interested in horses but for anybody who has taken up an endeavour with passion, overcome obstacles and dreamed of being the best.
