With a showjumping career spanning over forty years, Nick Skelton is a legend in the equestrian world. No other rider has won so many major competitions on so many different horses. Skelton has competed in eight Olympic Games, and, with his beloved horse Big Star; he was on the team that brought home the first showjumping team gold for sixty years at London 2012, and then made history by winning the individual Olympic gold medal at Rio 2016 - at the age of fifty-eight.

In 2000, Skelton was forced into an early retirement after he broke his neck in a serious fall. But, following an amazing recovery, he returned to ride and compete again in 2002. Now he tells the incredible story of his eventful life and matchless achievements with characteristic humour and candour. Recounting the setbacks as well as successes, the high jinks and the low ebbs, this definitive memoir of a legendary show jumper will inspire not only sportsmen and women all over the world, but everyone who appreciates what determination and talent can achieve.
