Fitzrada was a stubborn and unpredictable army horse with a death sentence until Jane Pohl was able to sway her father into buying him. Soon, Jane and Fitz were taking the Virginia show-jumping circuit by storm at a time when women were not taken seriously by their male competitors. In 1946, Jane and Fitz found themselves at the Jumper Championship of America at the prestigious National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden-the highest jumping title in the world. The road there for horse and rider was a five-year test of faith, patience, and understanding friendship.
