The candid autobiography of one of the world's leading and most popular three-day eventers
William Fox-Pitt has been one of the most successful three-day event riders for many years. He began eventing at the age of fifteen and decided to pursue this passion as a career after graduating from university.
In 2004, he had a year of extremes, going from winning Badminton to having the agony of seeing his horse get injured during the Olympics, which destroyed his chances of an individual medal and prevented the team from winning gold. The following year, he won Burghley, Gatcombe and Bramham to confirm himself as Britain's top rider.
In his eagerly awaited autobiography, he talks about the issues confronting the sport and reveals much about the vital partnerships with team-mates and, above all, the horses that help him to gain such success.
William Fox-Pitt is one of the world's leading three-day eventers, and is a record five time winner (on different horses) of the Burghley Horse Trials, among many other events. He is married to the broadcaster Alice Plunkett and lives in Dorset with their two sons.
