CLA South West: Visit to 2012 Olympic Gold Medallist William Fox-Pitt’s Yard

This event is now fully booked
We have been extremely lucky to secure a date in the busy diary of eventing legend and CLA member William Fox-Pitt who will take members on a tour of the Fox-Pitt Eventing yard and, we hope, give a short demonstration.

British Team and guaranteed him a ticket to the Atlanta Olympics in 1996. 

William was the first British rider to become eventing’s World No 1, a distinction he achieved in 2002 and again in 2009, 2010 & 2014.  He has represented his country consistently over the past 15 years, winning team Silver at the 2004 Athens Olympics, team Bronze at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, team Bronze at the 2002 World Equestrian Games in Jerez, team Silver at the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen, team Silver at the FEI Nations Cup 2021, team Gold and individual Silver at the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky.  He has won seven team Gold medals at the European Championships and has been the British No 1 nine times.

He is the only rider to have won five out of the six CCI****’s worldwide having won Burghley (1994, 2002, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2011), Badminton (2004 & 2015), Luhmuhlen (2008), Rolex Kentucky (2010, 2012 & 2014) and Pau (2011 & 2013).  He has won the HSBC FEI Classics, a series linking the top six Three-Day Events in the world, twice (2008 & 2010) and finished second in 2011. 

In 2011 William became the first rider to win a record six Burghley titles (on six different horses) and became one of the first riders to ever win a CCI*, CCI** and CCI*** at the same event on the same day - a feat achieved at Tattersalls, Ireland. 

William has won an unprecedented 10 CCI****'s, 46 CCI three-day events and 21 CIC one-day events.  His achievements in the sport make him one of the most successful British event riders of all time. 

William and his wife, ITV Racing presenter Alice Plunkett, developed a 28 stable state of the art training centre in Hinton St Mary, Dorset completed in 2005.
