Youth Eventing Euros presented in Rome.
The CSIO Rome was the stage for the presentation of the FEI European Eventing Championship for Young Riders and Juniors 2016 presented by Saudia.
The Federal President Vittorio Orlandi was amongst the guests for the press conference to launch the event which will take place in Rome from September 21-25.
German star Michael Jung, nicknamed the extra-terrestrial for his out of this world abilities and achievements in the sport, was the guest of honour.
Jung also took the time to have his say about the importance of the youth event: “These championships represent a huge opportunity to develop. They offer a real experience and taste of what the riders will then face in the seniors category. They offer the first real thrills of what it’s like to be a part of a team. You learn about the responsibility that comes with being in a team and fighting for the goal of the podium.“
