With an astounding eighteen medals in eight international championships and team gold medals at the Olympic Games in 1976 and 1984, Jack Le Goff created the standard by which modern-day equestrian teams are measured. But Le Goff's techniques could be unforgiving – tough, brutal, and abrasive – earning him critics as well as converts.

In this, his autobiography, Le Goff tells the whole story, from impoverished beginnings in Morocco, to the tragic death of his father, to his successes as a competitive equestrian.

Readers will enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of high-level international equestrian sport, as well as an entire section devoted to Le Goff's much admired and extremely successful training philosophy.
