Canevaro targets 2020 Paralympics
The Fieracavalli Verona 2016 was the stage for the creation of a new partnership between Equitatus, Kep Italia, Franceschini, Ready Supp and the Paralympic athlete Antonella Canevaro who has been riding since she was a child.
However, having been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 16, her opportunities have since been limited, and speaking about the issue, she said that it was hard to accept at first as show-jumping is her passion.
The Italian is not one to give in though, and to continue her equine passion, made the switch to dressage. Whilst opening up about her story, Antonella took the chance to thank her coach Angelo Brusà for all the support as well as the aforementioned partners such as Kep Italia for their backing in “Un sogno non ha limiti” (A dream has no limits) which has the objective of taking part at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.
The next four years will be testing, but the athlete and her coach remain optimistic and motivated for the challenge. So, let the road to Tokyo begin!
