Overview


America's most successful Grand Prix rider, Margie Goldstein Engle is the star attraction at any horse show at which she competes, and serves as a role model for a generation of young equestrians. Her successes include the prestigious American Invitational, the Budweiser AGA Show Jumping Championship, and representing the United States in Nations Cups and at the Sydney Olympics. She is the American Grandprix Association's only eight-time Rider of the Year and the first rider ever to place first, second, third, fourth, and fifth in a single Grand Prix class.
The route to the top was not an easy one. As a youngster growing up in Florida, Margie overcame parental objections to learning to ride, eventually doing chores at the stable in exchange for extra rides, and helping horse owners in exchange for tack, boots, and other equipment.
As Margie's passion for horses and eagerness for athletic challenges spurred her through the junior horse show ranks toward the open jumper division, veterans discouraged the petite rider with "you're too small-you'll never control those large animals." Nevertheless, Margie accepted horses that other riders rejected as too dangerous-and often turned them into blue-ribbon winners.
NO HURDLE TOO HIGH is the story of this talented and courageous athlete: of life on the "A circuit" and dealing with horses (including a chapter of riding advice) and of triumphs and setbacks, including a variety of falls and crashes that might have ended the career of a less tenacious person. But thanks to her dedication and skill and the love and support of her family-especially husband Steve-and her sponsors and fans, Margie continues to appear in top events . . . and in the winner's circle.
An extraordinary and inspiring story written by the person who has known Margie best-her mother-NO HURDLE TOO HIGH is a heartwarming display of parental pride, concern, and humor. It is a book that will appeal to everyone- rider or not-who thrills to challenges and triumphs at the highest levels.

    Margie Goldstein-Engle is brilliant!!

    WOW!! That is all I can simply say for this book. This book is written by her mother, Mona Pastroff Goldstein, so it is all truth and no lie. I LOVE Margie!! She has brought wonders to the world of Equine riding and fantasy. She is different from any other rider because she has experienced great and suffering struggles. It amazes how much we have in common. She is my hero and I would do anything to meet her!! MARGIE GOLSTEIN IS THE COOLEST AND WICKED AWESOME!!!
