The Jumping Game: How National Hunt Trainers Work and What Makes Them Tick Book

Retired racehorse trainer and bestselling author, Henrietta Knight, probes the secrets of thirty top National Hunt trainers in England and Ireland. As the woman who trained the great Best Mate to win three consecutive Cheltenham Gold Cups - a feat only equalled by the legendary Arkle in the 60s - no one could be better qualified than Henrietta Knight to discover what makes today's top jumps trainers succeed. From eccentric, outspoken Yorkshireman Mick Easterby, to elegant, aristocratic Venetia Williams, from Irish wizard, Willie Mullins, to perfectionist champion trainer, Paul Nicholls and young pretender, Dan Skelton, here is a dazzling cast of extraordinary characters, all with their quirks and foibles, but with one single-minded ambition - finding first class horses and training them to win big races. Their stories are fascinating, each one illustrated with unique photographs from private albums.Read More
