A look ahead to the show-jumping action across the globe.
It’s that time of the week when we look ahead to the upcoming events on the equestrian calendar. There are 3 big events which we would like to highlight to fans of the sport. It all begins with the second week of the CSI2* Vilamoura and the Vilamoura Champions Tour which has already brought some noteworthy results during the first week of competition for Italian rider Lorenzo De Luca. The Italian star with his mount Paratrooper conquered Portugal with victory in the GP.
In the following days, there have been a number of trials dedicated to young horses and which are scheduled to continue today in addition to the 1.30m, 1.35m and 1.45m categories which will see the Italian riders Marta Bottanelli and Lorenzo De Luca back in action.
In the USA and to be more precise in California, there is a CSI2* event taking place in the form of the World Cup. You can follow it on this channel: http://new.livestream.com/platform/pricing
