Ever since our first equestrian team set off to compete in the 1956 Olympics, Australia has rarely been out of Olympic medal placings.
Yet equestrian is unlike any other sport in that success is in large part determined by an unpredictable element - the horse. Imagine Lance Armstrong trying to win the Tour de France on a bike that suddenly developed a mind of its own.
Stories from the Saddle is a behind-the-scenes look at the hardships, joys, trials and successes experienced by the current leading and legendary men and women in dressage, three-day eventing and showjumping. By turns inspiring, humorous, poignant and dramatic, each rider shares moments of deepest emotion - their fears, despairs and triumphs - as well as their most unforgettable experiences with their horses.
