Seller's Description

JUMP JOCKEYS Alan Lee with Jeff King

Hardback with dust cover. 160 pages, black and white photographs. Price clipped, some yellowing to edges of pages.

Jump jockeys are very much the unsung heroes and heroines of the sporting world.  In a season, they may appear on the television for more hours than any sporting personalities, but few viewers would recognise their faces.  Yet they are prepared to risk life and limb, six days a week, often in the most appalling weather conditions.
Why do they force themselves through this peculiar and dangerous lifestyle, which includes restricting their eating and drinking and often driving up to 50,000 miles each season to courses up and down the country?  Jeff King, whom the jockeys themselves respect above all others, collaborates on this account of the steeplechasing season, an account, often personal, that takes us behind the scenes and into the lives of the riders and the people they work with, owner, trainers, stablelads and valets.
