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.”

Mary King and Michael Pollard, both profiled in Denny Emerson‘s new book HOW GOOD RIDERS GET GOOD, are in the top 11 after the dressage phase at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. King, a member of the gold-medal-winning British eventing team at the 2010 World Equestrian Games, sits in second and fourth on Fernhill Urco and Kings Temptress, and Pollard, one of Denny Emerson’s former working students, is eleventh on Icarus.

We’ll see what tomorrow–cross-country day–brings. They’re actually saying in the sixties and sunny tomorrow in Lexington, which I’m sure is surprising to most of those who have experienced the usual gallop in the rain, mist, or muck that Rolex Saturday brings. Don’t forget that Denny Emerson will be signing copies of HOW GOOD RIDERS GET GOOD at the Bit of Britain booth in the Trade Fair during the lunch break tomorrow…and if you didn’t make it to Lexington, you have one more day before our “Everything Eventing” month sale is over! Check out our discounts at the TSB bookstore, where shipping in the US is always FREE.
