Peter Hyde was a winner, a loser and a winner again.
Because Peter grew up in a home with a father who believed a real man was one who drank, he became an alcoholic. Stuck in a fog for many years, Peter gave up hope on ever owning a sober life — until the prospect of his daughter’s birth changed his thinking.
In a desperate attempt to make his existence have meaning, Peter challenged himself to build up a broken-down old-champion horse. Tempest Lad, which cost him a total of $100.
In the horse’s eyes he saw his own desperation and a cry for salvation and a second chance.
