Anticipation rises for Jumping Verona
The most important equestrian event in Italy, Jumping Verona, is just around the corner with the show-jumping spectacle set to run through to Sunday November 13.
One of the standout events is the FEI World Cup while there will be 50 riders from 18 nations taking part. What’s more, there will be 8 race categories with total prize money mounting to 410.000 euros.
174.000 is reserved to the Longines FEI World Cup Grand Prix scheduled for Sunday 13 November at 14.30. Adding to the spectacle is the first ever edition of the CSIU25 Riders Academy.
The spotlight will also fall on Italy’s 27 year-old Alberto Zorzi who is riding high after winning the opening leg of the FEI World Cup in Oslo and is out to build on that impressive victory.
2016 could be his year after his rise to the top last year. The event on home soil in Verona is another chance to shine for the Italian star.
