Mark Todd's own account of his amazingly successful career, tells of the early Pony Club days in New Zealand, through showjumping, to burst on to the eventingscene and win his first of three Badminton titles in 1980, and going on to win two consecutive Olympic golds on his now legendary horse, Charisma. 'Toddy' recalls the lows as well as the highs - the death of his horse in front of millions in 1992, which deprived him of a ride for the Barcelona Olympics; victory at Burghley in 1996 snatched from his grasp at the last moment - as well as his family life with fellow-rider wife, Carolyn, and their two children, with characteristic humour and frankness. He also includes an invaluable selection of his personal tips and techniques for success.
