From the queen of the British bestseller lists comes the classic hit every Englishwoman remembers with a sigh -- Riders, the steamy, scandalous tale of sexual and equestrian competition within the heroic world of international show jumping.
Welcome to a world of cutthroat competition populated by fearless athletes, wealthy sponsors, and beautiful starlets and set against the glorious Cotswold countryside and the playgrounds of the world. Within this arena we meet the brooding gypsy Jake Lovell, under whose magic hands the most difficult horse or woman becomes biddable, who is driven by his hatred of Rupert Campbell-Black, the handsome and supremely confident star of the show ring. They steal each other's horses and love each other's women as they push themselves and their mounts to impossible extremes, until their feud erupts, with devastating consequences, at the Los Angeles Olympics.

I don't know how many times I have read this over the years. For horse lovers, it is great. It shows the hard life of a show jumper. The highs... The lows...the hard work. Culminating with the Olympics in Los Angeles. I think it an good read for everyone, you don't have to be a horse lover to understand the incredible love and drive needed to succeed in the sport. A must read!
Seriously a must red for any equestrian.
