9780143572565: Life in the Saddle

The amazing life story of bush legend Alwyn Torenbeek: rodeo champion, stockman, and endurance rider. Alwyn Torenbeek—the Kokotunga Kid—left his outback hometown at 14, looking for adventure. He took with him a bushman's spirit, an uncanny natural ability for horseriding, and a determination to succeed. By the time he was 21, he was a national and international rodeo champion. When fate put an end to his roughriding career, Alwyn went on to be a stockman, drover, and station manager. A devoted family man, he was encouraged to take up endurance riding by his great friend, the legendary R.M. Williams, and is still competing more than four decades later. A riveting tale of adventure, romance, tradegy and mateship, Alwyn's story is also a tribute to the outback and the characters who make it special. From Winton to Wanganui, this is the ride of a lifetime.
