What Will Be: The Autobiography
The son of two Badminton riders, William Fox-Pitt was born into horse riding, and by the time he won his first gymkhana at eight, he was hooked to the sport. In 2004 he had a year of extremes, from the glory of winning Badminton to the agony of seeing his horse get injured during the Olympics, thereby destroying his chances of an individual medal and his team’s chances of winning gold. The following year, he won Burghley, Gatcombe, and Bramham to confirm himself as Britain's top rider for a fifth year, and was ranked second in the world. In this eagerly awaited autobiography, Fox-Pitt talks about the issues confronting the sport and reveals much about the vital partnerships with teammates and, above all, the horses that helped him to succeed. This is a fascinating account of one of the greatest equestrian riders of all time.
