Three times a winner at badminton, and a European, World, and Olympic medalist (including a team gold): equestrian Ian Stark's dedication to the sport, and to his horses, has made him a crowd favorite and a constant champion. Now he takes a very personal look at those horses--some, like Murphy Himself, almost a household name--and also provides an intimate glimpse into his own life. Filled with lively anecdotes and exciting action pictures of Stark and his steeds (including Sir Wattie; Oxford Blue; Jaybee, "the Flying Kiwi"; and the snowy-white Stanwick Ghost) taking soaring jumps over event obstacles, these recollections capture all the highs, as well as the occasional unexpected spills, of a truly outstanding career. A Main Selection of the Equestrian Book Club.
