"A raunchy new drama"
Based on Jilly Cooper's million-copy bestseller, RIDERS is a story of love, lust and rivalry set in the glamourous world of international show-jumping. A world in which conquest of women drives the competitors as much as performance in the ring.
Rich and handsome Rupert Campbell-Black (Marcus Gilbert) is a ruthless seducer and gets what he wants. He has everything; beautiful women, good looks, money, charm and fast cars. Nothing and nobody will stand in his way. Until one day he meets Jake Lovell again.
Half-gypsy Jake (Michael Praed) had been badly persecuted by Rupert at school. Ever since he has fought for everything he's accomplished. He handles a horse with effortless skill and is consumed with hatred for the arrogant and permiscuous Campell-Black.
Passion drives both men on and off the field-as they strive for national honour and finally for Olympic glory.
