An entertaining and inspiring autobiography. In 2008, university graduate and modern pentathlete Tik Maynard, aged 26, found himself suddenly adrift and facing a crossroads in life after suffering both a career-ending injury and a painful breakup.
Maynard chose to spend the next year as a `working student' and chronicles his experiences-good and bad-and we follow along as one year becomes three, what began as a casual adventure gradually transforms, and a life's purpose comes sharply into focus. Over time, Maynard evolved under the critical eyes of Olympians, medal winners, and world-renowned figures in the horse world.
He was hired and fired, told he had the `wrong body type to ride' and that he had found his `destiny'.
Through it all he studied the horse, and human nature.
