Since his Olympic title in 2012, achieved with his legendary virtuosity, Steve Guerdat became part of the exclusive circle of the world's best riders. Grown up in the milieu of equestrian sport, surrounded by his family, who has dedicated themselves completely to this noble sport, the rider from Bassecourt gradually worked his way up to the top of the world, not least thanks to his above-average talent, but also thanks to those who believed in him.
This story is told by journalist Raffi Kouyoumdjian, with the help of Steve Guerdat, who adds in each of the 17 chapters his personal comments that lend this book a particular and sometimes even intimate character. Numerous statements by relatives and close persons, riders and other personalities give the stories a particular significance.
Richly illustrated with previously unpublished photos and images, this elegant book is a journey around the world, from Bassecourt to Athens, to Valkenswaard, Las Vegas, Hong Kong, London and Rio, not forgetting Geneva, his favorite home tournament, and Herrliberg, the new home of Steve Guerdat and his team near Zurich. Many places that marked the life and career of the Jurassic show jumper, who has climbed the Olympus at the age of only 30 years.
