An Eventful Life provides an insight into the lives of five elite Australian eventing riders: Sonja Johnson, Megan Jones, Shane Rose, Wendy Schaeffer and Stuart Tinney. They are all Olympic medallists, they are all aiming for further medals and they are all still based in Australia.
An additional chapter on an up and coming rider, Emma Scott, reveals how younger Australian riders vying to take over from these champions view the world of professional equestrian sport.
This is not just a book for fans of equestrian sport - it is a book for anyone interested in how seemingly ordinary people become Olympic champions. Their stories are inspiring, touching, funny at times and sad at others and they reveal what it takes to be the best in the world. Each of these Olympic medallists deserves a biography of their own – but as they are still at the top of their sport and aiming for future goals.
These are their stories . . . so far.
