"If there is one name in the American equestrian story that everyone knows, it is George Morris. A horse lover, rider, carouser, competitor, taskmaster, dreamer, teacher, and visionary, George Morris has been ever-present on the rarified stage of the international riding elite for most of the 70 years he's been in the saddle. He has represented our country as an athlete and a coach and, at one time or another, instructed many of our nation's best horsemen and women. His carefully chosen, perfectly enunciated words are notoriously powerful. They can raise you up or cut you to the quick. His approval can be a rainmaker; his derision can end a career. But as much as people know and respect (or, perhaps, fear) the public face of George Morris, he has lived, in other ways, a remarkably private life, keeping his own personal struggles with insecurity, with ambition, and with love behind closed doors. It is only now that he has chosen, in his own words, to share the totality of his life-the very public and the incredibly private-with the world. This engrossing autobiography, the real story of the godlike George Morris, beautifully demonstrates his ultimate humanity. "-- Provided by publisher.
"George H. Morris, "The Godfather" of American horse sport, shares the fascinating story of his life. This is the autobiography of the most powerful man in the US equestrian world, tracing his rise, his struggles, and the evolution of horse sport on both a national and international scale"-- Provided by publisher.
