Despite being blinded in World War II, Col. Ansell went on to head the British Show-Jumping Association, British Horse Society, and British Equestrian Federation, doing more "than any other single man to make Britain one of the leading equestrian nations in the world, and to stimulate the ever-growing interest in riding as a competitive and leisure sport" (jacket flap). A full and active life--the army, gardens, horses, and more. Lots of behind-the-scenes details of horse shows that Ansell was involved with. Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.
