1: Congratulations to Fitz Eugene Dixon, Major General Guy V. Henry and the horse I Love You for being inducted into the Show Jumping Hall of Fame! Induction into the Show Jumping Hall of Fame is a great honor bestowed on a select few whose contributions to the sport of show jumping have set them apart. The induction ceremony took place at the American Invitational, and they join 81 others previously enshrined in the Show Jumping Hall of Fame since its inception in 1987. History in the making!
