Un ufficiale di cavalleria ama, riamato, la figlia di un nobile piemontese. Ma la ragazza, per salvare il padre dalla rovina finanziaria, si piega a sposare invece un ricco diplomatico austriaco. L'ufficiale si dedica allora appassionatamente all'equitazione e diviene uno dei più celebri cavallerizzi d'Italia. A Roma, alcuni anni dopo, egli incontra la sua antica fiamma e i due starebbero per allacciare una colpevole relazione se le chiacchiere pettegole del mondo, ed un duello che il fratello della donna sostiene per difenderne l'onore, non la persuadessero ad allontanarsi dall'ufficiale. Egli allora, poiché gli muore il cavallo, passa all'aeronautica. Scoppia la guerra e l'ufficiale si distingue eroicamente fino alla morte gloriosa sul campo. 

A cavalry officer loves and is loved by the daughter of a nobleman from Piedmont. But the girl, to save her father from financial ruin, marries a wealthy Austrian instead. The cavalryman then dedicates himself passionately to horse riding and becomes one of the most famous riders in Italy. A few years later, he meets his old flame in Rome and the two start to meet one another on the sly. However, bitter gossip follows them wherever they go and, eventually, the woman's brother is forced to fight a duel to defend the honor of his sister. When she sends the cavalryman a Dear John letter, he ends up killing his horse in a competition, because he's distracted by his lost love. Vowing to never ride another horse again, our hero joins the air corps, where he finds his glorious end on the field of battle.
