Denny Emerson is on his way to recovery following the terrible accident he had in late July at the Stoneleigh-Burnham Horse Trials in Greenfield, Massachusetts.We are all incredibly thankful that although he suffered a C1 fracture in the fall, he did not suffer nerve damage.

Denny is ready to talk about the incident—and how when you participate in equestrian sports, where limb (and life) are at risk, you need to be prepared to accept the consequences. And hopefully, learn from them.

Mary King, winner of both first and second place at the 2011 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, shares her words of advice in TSB author Denny Emerson's new book HOW GOOD RIDERS GET GOOD.

The UK’s Mary King became the first rider ever to win both first and second place at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event on Sunday, May 1, 2011. King, who also led the British eventing team to a gold medal at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010, is one of the 23 riders–chosen from the best in the world in a variety of different horse sports–featured in Denny Emerson’s fantastic new book HOW GOOD RIDERS GET GOOD.

Olympic eventer Denny Emerson’s book shares the very best of his advice and experience gathered over a lifetime of riding, teaching, and competing in several equestrian disciplines, and tells us all just how we can make better choices over the course of our own riding careers and turn into the very best rider we can be. The 23 rider profiles scattered throughout the book give us a little glimpse into the different backgrounds from which some of our riding idols arose and disclose some of the obstacles they overcame, in the hopes that their own success stories can help inspire us as we forge forth on a quest for riding greatness.

“Follow your dreams, even if they seem impossible,” says Mary King in HOW GOOD RIDERS GET GOOD. “My own dreams seemed farfetched…but I have been able to do what I dreamed of doing.”

I’d say 8 out of 10 of my New Year’s Resolutions this year were inspired by Olympic eventer and Tevis Cup buckle-winner Denny Emerson’s new book HOW GOOD RIDERS GET GOOD (one of the perks of my job is getting to read fantastic material before everyone else…) The ideas he shares are hands-down some of the best I’ve come across, not only in terms of determining the course of your own riding career, but also in terms of deciding who you are going to be in this life–and by this I mean “in general,” whether your actions involve horses or not.

Denny’s theories, stories, and advice are reinforced by some of the top names in equestrian sport, from all kinds of disciplines, including eventing, reining, dressage, endurance, show jumping, driving, and hunters. His book includes “how I did it” profiles and photos from Beezie Madden, James Stierhoff, Anne Gribbons, Gina Miles, Sandy Collier, Georgina Bloomberg, Larry Poulin, Michael Pollard, Clinton Anderson, Laura Kraut, Jane Savoie, Mary King, Havens Schatt, Meg Sleeper, Stacy Westfall, Buck Davidson, Geoff Teall, Callan Solem, Robin Groves, Leslie Law, Louise Serio, Peter Wylde, and Courtney King-Dye.
