Even though it's main focus covers endurance racing (horse and people) it's really so much more than that. You could literally insert whatever goal you have tried to accomplish into each chapter and the advice, humor, and shared success/failures would apply just as well. I'm a horse person, so I got a lot out of that part of it, but so much of the book isn't really about the horse as much as it's about how we learn, how we fail (and learn), how we succeed (and learn) and how we make those little adjustments necessary to stay focused and moving forward (without throwing in the towel when frustration sets in). ~Amy
Accessible and fun to read; plenty of tips and food for thought for both novice endurance riders and those with more experience. Good advice delivered in a way that makes you want to get out there and give it a red-hot go, with humour and humility. Recommended.The tutorial on how to back a trailer, alone, was EVERYTHING to me!
