OUR FIERACAVALLI 2014!
The 2014 edition of Fieracavalli, the most important Italian equestrian trade fair which is held every end of the year in Verona, was a great opportunity to meet many friends all gathered in a single location. And this is why we decided once again to be located right next to the warm-up area of the Longines FEI World Cup: a place the international top riders can easily access to relax, enjoy a drink or a small snack while watching their collegues race on the competition arena thanks to a mega screen, talk a little bit and enjoy a massage offered in the Medicallife area. We were especially proud to hear their appreciation for our new helmets and rider bags, showcased right next to the area reserved to them, and very happy to congratulate Giulia Martinengo Marquet, Luca Maria Moneta and Lorenzo de Luca on their victories of one prize each out of the many competitions scheduled for the weekend.
We would like to thank the many athletes who stopped by - to name them brings the risk of forgetting some of them, but we'll try to be precise. First of all Filippo Bologni - the Italian young rider show jumping champion in 2013 and 2014 - who moved the crouds on Friday afternoon with a shooting and signing session in our booth; Matilde and Emanuele Bianchi - talents of the Italian show jumping team; Francesca Capponi, Filippo Codecasa, Emanuele Gaudiano - of the Gruppo Forestale dello Stato; Melanie Gruber - with her interesting projects in the world of show jumping; Norma Paoli Cirocchi - a superior Italian dressage rider; Alice Redaelli - the Italian young rider dressage champion for freestyle. And then of course the beautiful Sara Morganti - to whom we dedicated Friday morning in order to celebrate together her recent success at the World Equestrian Games, where she became the World Champion for Paradressage; Lucretia Pilar Cordon Muro - always so elegant and ready to talk about how important it is to be protected when riding; Marcus Ehning - the legend of the internation show jumping movement; and finally Jolanda Adelaar Rossi - who was invited in Verona to show how also a 5 year old Murgese stallion can perform top level dressage! Well done to all of them!
Before saying 'arrivederci' to the next edition of Fieracavalli, we'd like to thank all the media who are always ready to give visibility to what we do and to our projects. We are especially thankful for the interest all them showed for our 'safety journey': such an important theme to be developed and so dear to us.
