Drinking the Wind – At the Limits of Endurance
By John Tytler Thomson
Forged from the basics of good old-fashioned horsemanship and high-tech innovation. Endurance riding, the sport of a million steps, isn't for the faint hearted. At its purest level or at the extremes of competitive distances, it is the ultimate challenge of horse and rider against the natural elements.
Drinking the Wind is the extraordinary and inspiring version of one man’s recovery from a sudden and debilitating illness, an encounter with a ghostly horse and his progression to become a successful EGB endurance rider. It is about courage, determination and the tough, intense, often unforgiving conditioning required to prepare a horse and rider for the extremes of endurance. This is the remarkable account of the formidable bond forger between the rider and his pure-bred Arabian horse, and their combined battle for the first Trans-Scotland 200 mile Endurance Ride.
