Turning your horse out all year round is not quite as cheap and trouble-free as people might think, and this book highlights the problems and pitfalls and gives sound advice on how to avoid them. Why do you want to keep your horse at grass? Do you have access to a suitable field? Will he need company? The answers to these and hundreds of other questions, are all found here.

Whether you own a grass-kept horse or are just thinking about doing so, this book will be an invaluable aid to both your peace of mind and your horse's well-being.

'I've already had my nine lives on the bike...' Danny MacAskill lives on the edge. The cyclist is legendary for his YouTube viral videos like 'The Ridge': nerve-jangling blurs of stunts and speed over towering buildings and mountain peaks. His life is one of thrills, bloody spills and millions of online hits. It hasn't been an easy ride. Fear, stress and the 'what if?' factor circle every trailblazing trick, which require imagination, daredevil techniques and movie-making smarts. He has spent his life pushing the extremes; somehow, he's still around to tell the tale. In this unflinching memoir of mayhem, Danny shares his anarchic childhood on the Isle of Skye and early days as a street trials rider, takes us behind the scenes of his training and videos, and reveals what it takes to go beyond the next level - both mentally and physically. Join Danny for a nerve-shredding ride. Just be sure to bring a crash helmet.
