As ever, posting activity is usually a good indicator of how busy, or otherwise, I am. Since the last posting on 18th September, which is an absurdly long time to wait for an update, I've been busy indeed; so busy in fact, that I've had to look at my diary and note book to remind myself of what's been going on. So, here's what's been going on...
October audio releases include the following:
Gold: My Autobiography by Nick Skelton
"With a show-jumping career spanning over 40 years, Nick Skelton is a legend in the equestrian world. No other rider has won so many major competitions on so many different horses, and he is as popular at Olympia and Hickstead as he is at Aachen, Geneva, Paris and Spruce Meadows.
Skelton has competed in eight Olympic Games. He was part of the gold medal-winning Great Britain team at London 2012 and made history by winning the individual Olympic gold medal at Rio 2016, riding at the age of 58 his beloved horse Big Star.
He began riding at the age of 18 months on a Welsh pony called Oxo. At the age of 17 in 1975, Skelton took team silver and individual gold at the Junior European Championships. He has competed many times at the European Show Jumping Championships, winning numerous medals, both individually and with the British team.
In 1980 he competed in the Alternative Olympics, where he helped the British team to a silver medal. He still holds the British Show Jumping High Jump record that he set in 1978. In 2000 Skelton was forced into an early retirement after he broke his neck from a serious fall. But following an amazing recovery, he came out of retirement in 2002 to compete again.
Now he tells the full story of his eventful life and matchless achievements."
